Threshold: Black Water Snake

Threshold is an annual creative celebration held on the occasion of the Chinese New Year.  They really know how to make a good space for everyone to feel welcome and have a great time.  There’s always lots of creativity flowing.  This year they’re rockin’ it with a stellar lineup; headlined by Andrelien (aka Heyoka).  So there’s sure to be some serious sounds in the mix.

They always put on an amazing event, and this year is no exception.  Check it!

Birthed from creative efforts of the art collaborative Monkey Puzzle, the Threshold event series has evolved from three years as a grand Portland New Year’s Eve event (2007-2009) into a one-of-a-kind, high production value show fusing top live and electronica musical acts together for one explosive thematic party at the onset of the Chinese New Year (2010-2013)!
