Friday 19 October 2018 – 7th Annual Laugh in the Face of Breast Cancer (7:30pm)

This year is our 7th Annual Laugh in the Face of Breast Cancer Comedy Show! Each year, more people attend and more money is raised and each year, I can’t thank you enough for your support.

This year’s local and hilarious comedians include Stevn Padilla, Nick Palermo, Grady Pruitt, Dusti Rhodes, Josh Stokes and Tre Tutson.

From 2005 to 2011, my mother and I (and others) would walk in Komen’s Race for the Cure and as time went on, she became weaker from her cancer and cancer treatments. We went from walking the entire 5k to only doing about a 10 minute walk and turning back around- I would still make her walk through the finish line! In 2011, I thought about the next year and how she will probably be weaker than this year and I don’t want her to feel defeated (especially because she never felt defeated!) so I wanted to come up with something she could participate in but not have to anything at all yet somehow have some fun. So in 2012, I started Laugh in the Face of Breast Cancer in 2012. Why not go to a comedy show and laugh? We all need some fun in our lives and while she was fighting cancer with all she had, she still deserved to have fun and Laugh in the Face of Breast Cancer!

I’m asking you to share this with anybody and everybody. Last year, a friend told me that she sent it to her company’s Philanthropy Group and they sent it to over 500 employees!

If you can’t attend, please share the email and flyer and donate to the cause. You can use the same link to buy tickets and to donate online.

As always, thank you for your continued support. -Angie

Thursday 18 October 2018 – JVS Reel and the Bootleggers, Dead Country Gentlemen, Little Screamin Dogman (doors 7pm)

Dead Country Gentlemen (San Francisco, CA)
https://www.deadcountrygentlemen.com/

Expelled from the electrified womb of a city that never sleeps, nursed at the tit of alcohol induced delirium, baptized in a river rock n roll, Dead Country Gentlemen is a construct of raw emotions intermingled with hope, loss, love, failure and redemption – a window onto a landscape of broken dreams and scattered illusions.

DCG is a nightly opportunity for things broken to be fixed, a place to hang, discover, disappear and be re-born – a country of sight and sound, pleasure and pain. Halleluiah brother.

Presented for your consumption; fuzz, feedback, distortion and reverb that explodes in a maelstrom of blues driven riffs, heart pounding rhythms and mind-pondering lyrics. A duo of sound and fury coupled with true authentic blue-collar stage ethics distilled from miles of blacktop road and relentless touring. Each show is a real live breathing thing, an uncontrolled beast set loose, a pulse quickening experience that brings the edge dangerously close, close enough to see and maybe fall over. Like life, DCG is meant to be felt and experienced live – like hot breath on your neck they’ll crawl over you and get under your skin – in a good way, like a shot going down – warming, exciting, intoxicating.

 

Little Screamin Dogman (Sorry, no details at this time)
