Radiolab Live Portland Ticket Giveaway

During Radiolab's last live show in Portland, "In the Dark," hosts Robert Krulwich and Jad Abumrad, along with the Pilobolus dancers, shot promotional photos in the Keller Fountain.

In their “In the Dark” live show last year, the co-hosts of the hit NPR program Radiolab, Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich, told stories about overcoming darkness. For the finale, they passed out small LEDs to the audience and invited us to light them transforming the pitch black Keller Auditorium into a night sky of twinkling stars. On top of a show that involved amazing shadow puppet illusions by the dance company Pilobolus and the raw sounds of indie rockers Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, it was a truly awesome full sensory immersion. (To counterbalance, after the show Jad went for his first dip in a sensory deprivation tank.)

This year Radiolab returns with “Apocalyptical,” a show of stories about cataclysmic destruction and rebirth. For guests, they’ll bring human special effects jukebox Reggie Watts (seeing him live soundtrack a Radiolab story alone is worth the cost of admission) and bands On Fillmore and Noveller. It’s everything you love about the radio show and more.

The first show on November 19 at the Keller Auditorium sold so quickly that they’ve added a second on November 20. And we're giving away two pairs of tickets!
