Playing Kickball With the Anarchists (This Saturday) [5/19/2009 11:26:00 AM]:
Damn, that sounds like a Chumbawumba
song... (And for the uninitiated, no, the band didn't begin & end with that asinine "I get knocked down / and I get up again" football-lad singalong.)
Local "infoshop" Sedition Books is a welcome anomaly in our Metropolis of Greed and Conformity -- they're an out-and-out anarchist collective, lending library, meeting space, and book-/zine-seller that stocks stuff you really, truly can't find anywhere else in this city. I swear, they're like a funky little chunk of Portland or old-school Berkeley plunked down in the middle of Montrose.
As such, they deserve all the support they can get, especially when they come up with fun-sounding fundraisers like this. This coming Saturday, May 23rd, Sedition's holding a Kickball in the Park fundraiser at Dunlavy Park (4502 Dunlavy), with teams playing from 4PM 'til I dunno when -- $5 gets you on a team (and obviously, goes to benefit the bookstore -- er, infoshop, sorry). The info's on the flyer to the right; apologies for it being teeny-tiny, but that's the only size they had on their Website...
And hey, this is kickball we're talking about, as in "that awesome game you played as a kid but probably forgot about 'til reading this just now." I can't speak for everybody out there, but some of my fondest memories are of the 50-plus-kid kickball games we'd have back in the old neighborhood up in Fort Hood, TX., playing our hearts out from the moment the bus dropped us off until the sun went down & our moms called us in for dinner. At the very least, when your coworkers ask you, "what did you do this weekend?", you will have an utterly badass answer to give.
