BE PORTLAND’s Review of Night Flight’s 2nd Annual FRIGHT NIGHT:
“Suspended twenty feet in the air, a pair of skeletons contort their bodies within a steel prism above a crowd of awe stricken audience members watching in silent admiration. They dangle there for a few moments with their heads aimed towards the ground below before swinging their bodies around each other and through the prism in a series of carefully choreographed maneuvers that make the audience bust out in whistles of approval and cheers of amazement.
This was the scene Saturday night at the Alberta Rose Theatre as Portland aerial acrobatic troupe Night Flights performed their second annual presentation of Fright Night: A Halloween Circus, to a sold out crowd. The theatre was packed with an awestruck audience as they watched amazing feats performed by a truly impressive group of daring acrobats that not only kept the crowds necks craned towards the ceiling to watch as the performers swung from trapezes and dangled above the ground from chains but also kept them laughing the entire night . . .” -John Rosales [Be Portland] READ MORE

Live Music by FEVER
As sexy as their name suggests, Fever blends haunting and sultry blues ballads with witchy latin pop and cabaret sludge to create a truly unique sound that is nigh unclassifiable and always unforgettable.
“The band conjures up plenty of mood…delving deep into the seamy theatrics of cabaret, burlesque, and dark arts, resulting in something that’s sexy and just a little bit scary. Fever moved to Portland by way of Oklahoma, and they’ve got quite a number of elements into their sound: glam, goth, and cabaret rock, sure—but also surf, LA-style drug-noir, and maybe even some bluesy Old Weird America.” –Ned Lannamann [Portland Mercury]
“With hauntingly beautiful reverb drenched blues ballads, Fever is Portland’s criminally best kept secret. The kind of music that’ll make even the most asthmatic among you rushing for a cigarette afterward.” -DJ GrahamPoxx
