PASSING STRANGE Fundraising Update!
At this very moment, we have raised 69% (hey-oh!) of our Kickstarter goal! Just $1,665 left to go!!! WOOO!!! We are just over-the-moon with glee from the support that has been pouring out for our upcoming Midwest Premiere of PASSING STRANGE. We need to raise a minimum of $5,500 or we don’t get ANY of it. NONE! Zero. Zip. NADA! And that would be a real buzzkill. So check it out. You can pledge as little as $1. And any size pledge makes you an automatic member of the Bailiwick Chicago Society. (Ooooh, fancy!) Won’t you be our next backer? Click here to learn more.
This Sunday is our benefit for PASSING STRANGE. You have 2 opportunities to shake your booty at this event. #1 – Chicago’s very own DJ Ron Trent will be spinning house music to get us all warmed up. And #2 – the stars of PASSING STRANGE — JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound — will perform LIVE! If you’ve never seen their act, you are in for a real treat. I caught these guys opening for Poi Dog Pondering at Ravinia Festival this summer… and they pretty much upstaged the main event. I kid you not. JC Brooks is the modern reincarnation of a hybrid of Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye & James Brown. The dude is UNREAL. Women, you’ll be throwing your panties. And men… well, you’ll probably also be throwing your panties. But you’ll also want to BE him. He’s just that smooth. Catch their act this Sunday at the Funky Buddha Lounge (728 W. Grand Ave, Chicago) for only $30, which includes an open bar of beer and wine. And if you’re in the industry, we have a special rate of $15 with a H/R or business card (drinks not included). Tickets only available at the door, but cash or credit is accepted. Click here for more info.
Still don’t believe how awesome these guys are? Watch this.
