Rebel Revue photos

Posted by Lil Miss Hot Mess on November 8, 2009

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!
