Fashion Exchange

by Frank on April 12, 2012

This Year’s Evofest features a Fashion Exchange! A fashion exchange is where people bring in their lightly used quality clothes and exchange them for other clothes that they value. It’s a way to save money and clean out the closet while staying fresh and getting the styles you like.

It’s a pretty simple idea, but here’s some information for those of you dying to know more:

Bring as many items as you would like to swap. Items should be clean and in good condition. The more you bring, the more you can swap!

When you arrive at the Swap Party, you will be given one Exchange Token for each item you bring.

Add your items to the display. Once the items are at the Fashion Exchange, they are no longer yours.

Nothing can be claimed until the host opens the Exchange Floor.

Spend some time browsing the items and chatting to the other swappers.

Once the host announces the Exchange is open, you may claim as many items as you have Swap Tokens.

If two or more of you want the same item, put one each of your Swap Tokens in a hat for the host to draw a lucky winner.

Shazbot is my alias for producing electronic music, both in studio and in live shows. I write soundtracks for the daydreams and nightmares of the lonely six-year-old boy that lives inside my head. Parts of me have never grown up.

I’ve been making tracks and playing shows both locally and internationally for about seven years now. I’ve played all sorts of shows: local battles-of-the-bands and other concerts, house parties, friends’ weddings, marathon roadside entertainment, Ukrainian raves. No, I’m not making this up.

As the project got underway, new members were added to fill in the final pieces. Hand chosen for their drive and ambition.

The GVCS lowers the barriers to entry into farming, building, and manufacturing and can be seen as a life-size lego-like set of modular tools that can create entire economies, whether in rural Missouri, where the project was founded, in urban redevelopment, or in the developing world.

K-Sides

by Frank on April 7, 2012

K-sides has been together for about a year and a half. The goal is to explore the vast untapped potential in the Tulsa music scene and release it. Some call it “putting the show back in the show”. If people are gonna stop throwing that money into the movie theaters on the weekend and start investing it in the local music scene then they’re gonna need a reason. The current album “color me shine” is based on the comic of the same name that I’m writing. The band is about uniting Tulsa and the arts through music.

We don’t quite have a genre and you kinda have to see a show to get that. Some have called us “art rock” but when asked what kind of music we play I just say “good music”

I wanted to create something my 4 year old niece, all my friends, and my mother could enjoy. So far I’ve been told that we’ve done just that.
