#2574 - Star Theater, Portland, OR - 7/11/2014

Originally opened as the Princess Theater in 1911, this venue soon became home to a number of mostly bawdy uses over the years, hosting burlesque acts and strippers from Tempest Storm to Courtney Love. For several years it was owned by director Gus Van Sant, and subsequently transformed into several different nightclubs. In 2011 the owners of Dante's took over, and it's now a concert venue and event space, with a nice outdoor courtyard area and a lot of character. (This visit was for the opening event of Portland's TikiKon 2014, which included a few acts much in the spirit of the history of the venue.)
