HershFest

by | Dec 4, 2009 | POLITICS

HerschFest is a two-day festival of awesome. Herschel Stratego, musician, artist, and classy dude, has basically gone broke putting together this fundraiser for Avert.org, one of the world’s leading HIV/AIDS nonprofits. It’s a great cause at a great location (the Firehouse Theatre), and without further adieu, here’s the performer’s list (beneath the break)!

You missed HerschFest! Again, we’re sorry.

Note: Above is a tentative schedule for HerschFest, and a projection to suggest when one must arrive at The Firehouse Theatre to see the corresponding act(s) of interest. As there is no guarantee that the actual schedule will exactly follow said pattern, we recommend that you arrive on time or—better yet—early!

In addition, it may be a disturbance to enter The Firehouse Theatre in a distracting way, so be cautious, and enter with respect for any act that may be performing or exhibiting their work.
