Green up-lighting surrounded the lighthouse designed event space, and all of the guests were settling into their seats for the show by the time I arrived. In the center of the space was a long table for the silent auction which had items ranging from coffee sets to museum tours, to a private reading by award-winning actress Kathleen Chalfant to tickets to the live American Idol show in LA.
Michael Friedman accompanied on piano and shared some pieces from “Pretty Filthy” – t’was very different, very graphic, and very funny. “A team of Civilians’ artists conducted interviews with performers, directors, agents, producers, and more in Las Vegas and the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles… these interviews featur[e] several adult entertainment stars discussing the do’s, don’ts, and won’ts of shaping a career, how they got into the business, and more.” Some jokes went completely over my head… but I’m okay with that.
Looking forward to tonight’s Tech Meetup at Refinery29 – till then!
