WHERE'S THE FALAFEL? WHITHER THE FILIPINO? WHAT'S THAT FLAKING?:
Gotta take a moment here to further the hype on an event going on this week in Astoria, OR and Seattle, WA (y'all missed the shows in Eugene and Portland - sorry). The WTF Fest is a massive, multi-cultural, trans-generational art and provocation festival, with music, poetry, performance art, dancing, videos and a million-volt Tesla coil. It also features the amazing, legendary John Sinclair, who will also be appearing on my WOW & FLUTTER radio program tonight (4/25/12) at 11 PDT on Coast Community Radio. I was a part of the festivities in Portland on Monday and shall be again in Astoria this Friday, so the following may be construed as some kind of conflict of interest, but, as they say, what the frak?
A piece I wrote on the event for the latest issue of Hipfish Monthly.
...and an interview with the event's co-proprietors, Shane and Amy Bugbee, from last week's WOW & FLUTTER program:
