Booty and The Beast at Merrill Auditorium, Anna Lombard, Kristina Kentigian and the Kenya Hall Band at Sun Tiki

Saturday, November 16

It’s safe to say that Portland’s historic Kotzschmar Organ has never been this funky before. Disco party band Motor Booty Affair team up with organist James Kennerley for a concert, replete with disco-era fashions and light show, called Booty and the Beast at Merrill Auditorium (20 Myrtle St., Portland) at 8 p.m. Tix: $40-$60. 842-0800. And three queens of the Portland music scene converge at Sun Tiki Studios (375 Forest Ave.) when soulful singer Anna Lombard (Armies), R&B sensation Kristina Kentigian and the funky Kenya Hall Band share the bill beginning at 8 p.m. Call 329-5621 for cover (all ages).
