Live Wire Featured in WWeek's Give!Guide! Huzzah! | Live Wire Radio
We LOVE November! The candy hangover is still fresh, the city smells like newly wet asphalt mixed with rotting leaves, and the promise of overcooked turkey with strangers disguised as family is in the air.

But better than all of that, it's when Willamette Week launches its annual holiday fundraising program, the Give!Guide.


So many reasons! We employ artists, we are independent of OPB (so don't get direct funding from them), and, like all arts organizations, we rely on contributions to keep ticket prices lower. (Yes, unlike that Wings reunion tour your parents dragged you to, only 50% of the ticket price covers our costs.) 

But really, please think about what Live Wire does for this great city: an hour of smart, quirky, funny, thought-provoking, participatory, and apparently sandwich-dropping comedy, music and conversation with some of the planet's most engaging human beings. Live Wire features the best of Portland on our stage, and brings those individuals and organizations to the rest of the world through our broadcasts and podcasts.

"If you can make a farm subsidy documentarian
feel like a rock star, you're on to something.
Dang me for not sending a check
to Live Wire sooner! You guys rock."
- King Corn director Curt Ellis
