In late 2015, legendary music promoter Chris Porter took me out for drinks to pitch an idea he had been tossing around in his head for awhile. Newly freed from 18 years as programmer and talent buyer for the landmark Seattle Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival, Chris was looking to expand his horizons into television and new media. After tossing around some ideas (and tossing down a few drinks), he and I came up with a blueprint for a travel series that would bridge what Anthony Bourdain (RIP, Sighhhhhh) had pioneered with food travel in his innovative and entertaining “No Reservations, “The Layover” and “Parts Unknown” with the live music festival world Chris was so familiar with.
Now three years later, we have our teaser for the pilot of “All Stages with Chris Porter.”
We hope you enjoy this taste of “All Stages with Chris Porter”.
See you on the road.
