Dearest Friends of the Evangenitals,
This Saturday night, from 9pm to 2am, the Evangenitals are hosting a concert/party/fundraiser @ Mr. T's Bowl in Highland Park for The 1 Second Film's "Road Trip to Oprah". It's only $5 at the door, and there's so many great bands playing the joint might just explode from all the seething talent.
Just check out this radical flier by Patrick Ian Moore!
If you haven't heard yet, the "Road to Oprah" is a sure-to-be-legendary adventure in which the Evangenitals (traveling as The Love Punks) will be joining The 1 Second Film's documentary crew on a 45-day bio-diesel journey across America. We leave L.A. mid-September and will be visiting San Fran, New Orleans, Miami, NY, and many other cities along the way, stopping at universities and house parties to present the 1 Second Film project and perform sweet, sweet music whilst composing an on-the-road companion album for the film.
The trip will end in Chicago, where we hope to ask Oprah for $1 to help produce The 1 Second Film. We will be fundraising over the summer to make the trip a reality, starting this Saturday @ Mr. T's Bowl. So, in effect, by supporting the 1 Second Film, you can help the Evangenitals to get on Oprah... or at least get a whole lot of exposure on the Road to the Big O!
Here's the Lineup:
The Evangenitals (10pm)
The Natural Disasters (11pm)
Cousin Junebug (11:45pm)
8 Bit (1:15am)
All going down on
Saturday, June 23rd
Mr. T's Bowl
5621 1/2 FIGUEROA ST
Highland Park, CA 90041
$5 at the door. Proceeds from the party will benefit our Road Trip. The door money can also be put toward your producer credit. That's right, come to the show on Saturday night, and you are officially a Hollywood Movie Producer. No kidding. The 1 Second Film is even on IMDB. Kevin Bacon's a producer. You could be 1 degree from Kevin Bacon! How's that for a way to spend your Saturday evening?
We need to raise $11K ASAP to buy an old school bus so we can convert it to bio-diesel and ready it for the trip. This Saturday will be a fun start.
Hope you can make it, and please pass this on to folks who give a damn.
All my nuggets,
Juli of the Genitals

This is the beginning of a great adventure, and we're going to need every ounce of love and support that you can spare.
