Premiere of Big Miss Moviola Chainletter #1, The Velvet Chainletter.
As Pablo de Ocampo recalls how he found out about Joanie 4 Jackie: “I was living in Portland for a couple months in early 1996 and I think I learned about it through flyers at shows and just word of mouth from people around town. I was 19 at the time and into music so I was going to shows whenever I could. I remember seeing Miranda play shows a couple times that year at some long gone venues: the Paris Theatre downtown and the Rexall Rose on Alberta. Also, I was doing at internship at the Northwest Film Center. I don’t remember who or what the context was, but I think someone there mentioned it to me as well.”
