John Waters on his annual holiday show / Coffeeshop Conversations @ Artichoke Music #402

By TOM D'ANTONI // John Waters returns to Portland this week for his annual "A John Waters Christmas" show at the Aladdin Theater. It is sold out. He's had quite a year.

There are various signposts by which we mark the beginning of the holiday season. My favorite is John Waters’ return to Portland for his annual “A John Waters Christmas” show at the Aladdin Theater.

It always sells out, and has again this year. Nevertheless, it’s a chance to talk with John about the show and all of the exciting things he’s been up to over the past year. We know each other from my Baltimore days. I was born there and spent far too many decades there before I escaped to Portland.

Mine was his final interview of the day about the show. Lucky us. Welcome back John Waters.
