Let the Wild Rumpus Begin

Nymphs glide among vines dripping through magical lighting and fairytale mushrooms.  This is Chelsea’s The Rumpus Room parking lot transformed into a magical forest. The concert goers easily fell into the breezy party spell during the last hours of daylight as the night picked up with beer and music, creating something more than just a concert.

The Rumpus Room Outdoor Summer Concert Series kicked off its second summer with Rusted Root and The Ragbirds. The series, as the name suggests, stretches through summer with four more events. The concerts began when Jet’s Pizza franchisees Jason and Suzei Povlich combined their passions, music and philanthropy, to create Project 418. Last year’s series raised enough funds to open an orphanage for 67 children with Project 418. The Povlichs took their previous creation (parking lot turned tropical beach) and pushed it to the next level with an immersive magical forest this year. The volunteers, costumed as mythical creatures, move throughout all sorts of greenery draped around booths and tables.

Simply put, this is a benefit concert series that gives locals an awesome party while supporting a good cause. The Devon Allman Band headlines the next concert in this series. Led by Greg Allman’s son, the band belts out bluesy rock with a soul center. Fitting sounds for a gathering whose cause befits an otherworldly event environment that imagines the world a little bit better.

The beautiful thing about the kinds of songs that Tanager make are how layered they are… These are guitars that envelop you, drums that pull you, melodic phrases that levitate you (and no, I’m not on drugs as I write this)… Those ethereal traits have always distinguished a Tanager song, a hybrid of coarse distortion

Have We Met?—The Dialogue Between Past and Present

It is heartrending to see that message, reverberated through the past and into the present. Cynics may be tempted to ask, “Have we really made any progress?”. Yet, above the calls of protest and activism, the gallery is also filled with silence, waiting for the viewer’s response to the question, “Will you change it?”

Moore Takes Aim at Both Parties in Fahrenheit 11/9

Flint’s story is essential to the film because it illustrates the power of greed and why corporate money has no place in government. Macroeconomics 101 tells us that corporations are beholden to one thing—their stockholders. Humans do not enter into this equation. How can you have a democracy for the people when corporate money runs the government? You can’t.
