Wanted to publish photos from the event I emceed on Wednesday: Rebel Revue, a benefit for the amazing journalist Nora Barrows-Friedman. Seriously, this lady is on fire — she’s a badass mom, a great cello player, and an anti-zionist Jew who greatly contributes to the movement with her reporting on KPFA, Electronic Intifada, and elsewhere. It was a great evening filled with really talented people — Boots Riley of The Coup (!!!) who was embarrassed when I introduced him as “the hottest commie you’ll meet” (Nora’s words, but I concur), Excentrik and his brother Rhythmatic, Kamau Bell, Dina Omar, and a whole lot more. And we raised more money than usual in a single night – mazel tov to Nora and the other organizers!
Wow! Brick background. This is like my middle school fantasy of being a bohemian, a la Rent.
Adding humor to the movement, one jazz-square at a time.
With Nora (center) and Jennifer (left). Watch out, Wendi: Jennifer tried to tell me she was my #1 fan!
Thanks to Lisa for the photos!
