Keeping it Cool: a Benefit for Interference Archive


Saturday, September 29, 2018

4:00 PM to 9:00 PM

September 29, 2018, 4:00-9:00pm
You’re invited to Interference Archive’s (almost) annual benefit! It’ll be a fun night filled with friends, refreshments, and social movement history, celebrating one year in our new home on 7th Street. There will even be special programming for kids in the first half of the evening, from 4-6pm.
Advanced ticket sales have ended, but tickets are available at the door: $25 for adults, $5 for kids between 6 and 16, and free for kids under 6. 
All funds raised go directly towards one of the most critical supporters of our 30,000+ collection of social movement ephemera–the AC Unit! We owe the final bulk payment on our AC and we’re raising funds just for that. Our goal is $5,000. It’s really important for our collection to be in a cool, stable environment so that it can live on and be accessed by generations to come.
So join us, bring your cool vibes, and keep Interference Archive chill.  There will even be a raffle–get your wallets ready!
Keeping it Cool includes protest karaoke! Angel Nevarez & Valerie Tevere will host a set of protest karaoke with their project Another Protest Song: Karaoke with a Message at the Keeping it Cool fundraiser.
Another Protest Song: Karaoke with a Message  (2008 – ongoing) is a series of performances that utilize the karaoke platform as a site with potential for political enunciation through song. Karaoke is communal, social, musical. With protest karaoke, our song choices may speak of present political struggles and histories, rather than music consumed primarily as products of popular cultural.
P.S. This is also a great time to catch our closing exhibition Agitate! Educate! Organize! Agit Prop into the 21st Century, on view through September 30th.
Interference Archive is grateful to the following businesses for their support of this fundraiser.
