All That Is Ultraviolet
If you want to know what show is "the show" to go to tonight, look no further than the above flyer. Club Dada is hosting the Ultraviolet Showcase tonight. There is a $5 minimum donation to get in the door, and 100% of the proceeds go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This is a cause particularly near and dear to the hearts of Kirk Dixon (El Gato) and Rebecca Dixon (Lovie), as their daughter Violet has Cystic Fibrosis (hence the name Ultraviolet).
This is a great night of not just music, but art. Many local artists, including Ange Fitzgerald, Erica Fellicella, Frank Campagna, Fred Holston, and over 15 others, have donated works of theirs for auction tonight. Again, all proceeds of the auction go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. And while you're there, go to Hal Samples' "Cash and Carry Booth" and have a photo taken to commemorate this fine evening.
Here is a schedule for the evening:
9:00-9:20pm - disconnected in '73 (outside stage)
9:25-9:45pm - Blue Petal (inside stage)
9:50-10:15pm - Lovie (outside stage)
(auctions end at 10pm)
10:20-10:50pm - Sunward (inside stage)
10:55-11:25pm - The Felons (outside stage)
(auctions end at 11pm)
11:30-12:00pm - El Gato (inside stage)
(auctions end at midnight)
12:05-12:35 - Bridges and Blinking Lights (outside stage)
12:35-1:15ish- Wonderfool (inside stage)
Finally, don't forget to get your own copy of the Ultraviolet compilation CD. It features tracks by all of tonight's performers, as well as as twelve other local acts and a live track by the not-so-local Sebadoh. I hope to see a lot of friendly faces out at Dada tonight.
