Nostalgia for high places.

We have our handy friend and librarian Greg Bem to thank for audio recordings of the last Claustrophobia. Check them out and hear the bats join in the noise.

And photos!

Claustrophobia 17: Lofting

For over two years, Rachel’s spot in Columbia City was homebase for Claustrophobia; we hosted more readings there than any other venue, and did a lot of planning and plotting for non-apartment events there. Well she’s moved, and we figured it’s about time to introduce the new spot to the world with readings from:

Corinne Manning
Tom Phillips
Jeanine Walker

Wednesday, March 5th at 7:30pm. 
903 15th Ave, Apt 3. 

Come, be part of the newness!

The cooling went great. Howabout a warming?


January 12th, 3pm. Chris Gusta, Anna Wolff, Rachel Hug and Shane Guthrie will word-warm
Graham’s Pioneer Square/ID/Downtown studio. Plenty of time to sleep in before, get to bed early afterwards.

Go ahead and rsvp here:

Getting cool, staying cool

So with an appropriate amount of *ahem* legal warning, Rachel has been alerted that she needs to find a new place to live. Her apartment on letitia not only hosted the very first Claustrophobia, but has served as the starting grounds and planning center for the series since its inception. We figured its only appropriate to say goodbye in style with readings and performances from

Robert Kaye
Bronwyn Isaac
Chelsea Kurnick.

4219 Letitia Avenue S, lower unit
December 27th, 7:00 pm, 2013.

BYOB and food, chilled or not.
