Corina Lucas is a Portland comedian with a high-energy style that leaves audiences in stitches. She was raised in the suburbs and went to Catholic school so, naturally, her material is filthy. She placed third in the 2018 Portland’s Funniest Person Contest at Helium Comedy Club, the Portland Mercury named her one of their ‘Undisputable Geniuses of Comedy’ and the Willamette Weekly named her one of the five funniest comedians in Portland. She has been on the Portland Queer Comedy Festival, the All Jane Comedy Festival and SF Sketchfest. She was featured on the Epix original series ‘Unprotected Sets’ and cohosts ‘The Alliance’, one of Portland’s most successful weekly showcases. Her butt has been described as ‘breathtaking’.
Elisabeth Pixley-Fink is a Portland-based singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and band leader, born and raised in Kalamazoo, MI. With strong ties to the Michigan folk scene and Mexico City’s indie folk/rock community, she has toured throughout the US and Mexico. She released her full-length album Bloodroot and EP Heartwood through Earthwork Music, and albums Neighborhood Kid and voodoolanda ii as garage rock trio A Brother and A Sister Band. In Portland, she performed with indie rock band Family Almanac, whose EP was produced by members of Radiation City. Elisabeth’s songs are heartbreaking and heart-making, wearing you down and working you over. Her blend of delicious folk music and bratty garage rock hits you in the chest and mouth with guts, trust, and hunger.
