DiverseWorks FUNdraiser this Saturday

This weekend Diverse Works is having a FUNdraiser with a really solid line up of bands.  As you can see on your right, the line-up will have DJ Brett Koshkin, The Wiggins, sIngs, Wild Moccasins and a very very pissed off Jana Hunter. I don’t know why Jana is so pissed off in this flyer but she looks like she will kick my ass if I don’t go to this show.  I tried to get to the bottom of Jana’s burning hatred of something by contacting Diverse Work’s operations manager Jon Read (who also performs as The Wiggins) but he wouldn’t answer any questions about this (likely out of fear for his life).  He did though answer a few quick questions for us about the show, the bands, and Star Wars.

FPH - Explain the event:  how it came together, what the money goes to, and maybe a little about Diverse Works for those who don’t know much about it.

Read -Diverseworks is an alternative non-profit art space. We show work by artist that risk being eclipsed by mainstream venues. DW relies on donations and grants, but due to this recession/ depressions, we, like many non-profit organization, are struggling. So, we are going to use the money to build a time machine to fix this whole mess from the start.. Or pay some bills.. whatever’s easier.
 
FPH - OK pretend each band playing is an action movie.  You’re the writer and you have to make a quick pithy pitch to a Hollywood bigwig.  Go!
 
FPH -  JANA HUNTER…

Read - This time, its gonna’ be a blood bath..
 
FPH -   WILD MOCCASINS…

Read - When they come..You die!
 
FPH - SINGS…

Read - The future.. Is in his gun.
 
FPH - THE WIGGINS…

Read - This summer, you can run, but where?
 
FPH - DJ BRETT KOSHKIN…

Read - Has your number!
 
FPH - You have a raffle going on that’s pretty funny in spots. My favorite is easily “dinner with Roy Mata and a guest”.  I’m sure people will be fighting for that but what are the details?  Are you going to his house for dinner?  Is he taking you out?  Or is this some kind of scam where Roy just shows up at your door and says “Hey, what’s cookin’?”

Read -If that’s what Roy wants.. 
  
FPH - Lastly, Wampa or Rancor?

Read - Which ever one will KILL George Lucas faster*.. Star Wars is the worst thing to ever happen to me.
