Bring Back Pirate Cat Radio

If you miss hearing Pirate Cat Radio, here is your chance to bring it back… The San Francisco community radio station has launched a campaign to raise funds and get itself back on the airwaves since it got booted by the ever-reasonable FCC.

Pledges of just $1.00 will start earning you some excellent prizes which include bowling with a bunch of shaved DJs, concert tickets, and enough coffee to ruin your stomach lining.

Emery Awards Gala

If you plan on being in NYC on Tuesday, November 9th, the 2010 Emery Awards sound like a pretty hott ticket. The Hetrick-Martin Institute will be honoring Glee creator Ryan Murphy, Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington, and fashion mogul Marc Ecko for their contributions to creating a more accepting and supportive world for the LGBT community.

I can imagine it will be a pretty great night, considering (a) how horrifyingly addictive Glee is, (b) that I still laugh thinking about Huffington screaming at Ahhnold during the California recall election, and (b) that based on the images I just googled Marc Ecko is pretty hot.

RIOT! A dance party to benefit Queer Rising

If you’re looking to have some fun and do some good in NYC this coming weekend, news of this event has come down the wire from 21st Century Life and RIOT!.

“Our first party will benefit local grassroots political organization Queer Rising and will be co-hosted by drag divas (and our close friends) Dallas DuBois and Paige Turner.

“There will be a $5 suggested donation at the door that will all go to Queer Rising. In addition to raising money for QR, we’re inviting them to be at the event itself to build its email list, distribute literature, and get its name out to a group of people that might not have otherwise gotten involved.”

“The Saint Plays”

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of seeing The Saint Plays, a production of Factory 449 written by Erik Ehn currently playing in Dupont Circle. The director, John Moletress – a friend of TNG – has done an incredible job at staging what feels more like a drug-induced dream than your standard play.

As someone who is always seeking unique artistic experiences and alternatives to overused stories and familiar methods for telling them, I was thrilled with the performance. It was also rare to see a piece so evocative of religious concepts and imagery – while also critical in its perspective – that was being performed on stage rather than in a museum for contemporary art. Religion, like sex and politics, is traditionally a subject thought to be avoided in any context that may make people uncomfortable. That is probably why it is still refreshing to see a thoughtful treatment and critique of religious thought that presumes (a) its audience is intelligent enough to “get it” and (b) that they’re equally prepared to take a punch.

7/29 – Ballet Nouveau Colorado Benefit – Discount Available

As I mentioned last week, Ballet Nouveau Colorado – a terrific contemporary dance company who does lots of good for the community – is holding a benefit on Thursday night. The event, called “Moving Together” dance groups from around the country, has been put together to close their budget shortfall so that they can continue to operate.

BNC announced today that if you are a student, artist, or non-profit employee, you can purchase tickets at the discounted rate of $20. Otherwise, full price tickets are still available and the money is going to an excellent cause.

Either way, please consider showing this organization your support! This is likely to be one of the best dance events in Colorado this year, so it’s pretty much a win-win situation.

7/29 – Dance Benefit for Ballet Nouveau Colorado

Over the past few months, I’ve had the privilege of seeing a contemporary, love-themed performance by Ballet Nouveau Colorado, as well as seeing them rehearse and then open a brand-new ballet entitled Somewhere American, Volume 1. During both events, I was impressed with the creativity and ingenuity of BNC, which plays the rare role of actually bringing something completely new to its audiences.

In addition to performing new pieces for the Denver-Boulder area, BNC is also an active part of the community. I was impressed to hear about BNC’s involvement in area schools where they work to make academic material engaging for struggling students, through dance and art.
