PortalView “I Seen ‘Em!”

By Chris Murphy

Have you been abducted by an alien? Really, I “seen” ‘em too!
There is something really cool happening here in Modesto over by MJC. There is an unusual time space warp that has created a hole in our solar system and a Portal has been created. Yes, this amazing place that by day is home to the Hope Haven West, a wonderful non-profit organization that supplies wheel chairs to people in central and south America, is by night, set to become a beacon of live music. Designed after the places like the Freight & Salvage in Berkeley, the Portal has already hosted some amazing live performances. This is a cool space with interstellar relics and hypnotizing black hole nebula.

Coming this month on November 21 is Francesca Bavarro opening for Bongo & The Point! Event is free, food & drink available for purchase. Doors at 6, Music at 7.

Event planners, please note this space may be made available to non-profits in the area and for cool events by Rotary Clubs etc. Great parking lot for food trucks and festival seating. Make sure that you take time to contribute to Hope Haven West for this amazing wheelchair project.
