Singer Shows Up At Canceled Portland Gig
Singer Michelle Shocked showed up outside the Alberta Rose Theater in NE Portland last night even though it had canceled her concert after anti gay comments she made last month during a show in San Francisco. The theater instead put together a gay rights benefit. Shocked sat around the corner wearing white overalls, sparkly tennis shoes and a noise maker. The Oregonian asked her if she had thought about not coming to the gig. She responded it wasn't really an option and said she is just too passionate about free speech. She brought several signs with her. One read Truth. Another said Reality and a third said Join The Conversation.
