We are a part of the Siren Nation

Portland is living up to its reputation of being extremely gay. The all-women music and arts festival Siren Nation has announced its initial musical line-up and queer ladies dominate. The Gossip, Mirah, Swan Island and Swallows are the biggest acts that will play during the fest November 1-4.

Siren Nation will also offer free workshops to women and a marketplace for lady entrepreneurs and organizations to meet and network. It’s like Ladyfest but with a different name–one that is ironically described by Wikipedia as a “decoy” to seamen who became distracted by the siren’s music and shipwrecked. This could be ironic, or totally intentional.
