Birthed from creative efforts of the art collaborative Monkey Puzzle, the Threshold event series has evolved from three years as a grand Portland New Year’s Eve event (2007-2009) into a one-of-a-kind, high production value show fusing top live and electronica musical acts together for one explosive thematic party at the onset of the Chinese New Year!
