POP - DOXA's Fall Fundraiser
Friday, November 27, 2015
7:30pm-10:30pm (Doors open at 7:30pm)
Studio 700 at CBC Vancouver
700 Hamilton Street, Vancouver, BC
Tickets: $25 (includes canapes and one complimentary drink)
A celebration of the underground anarchism, and spontaneous happenings, inspired by Andy Warhol’s legendary event Exploding Plastic Inevitable, DOXA POP is a shape-shifting collision of film, music, and performance. The original Exploding Plastic Inevitable events, staged between 1966 and 1967, featured live music from the Velvet Underground and Nico, multiple film and lighting effects, and performances by Warholian superstars.
Vancouver’s own superstars, Supermoon, featured in the Best Bands of 2015 in the Georgia Straight’s Annual Best of Vancouver Issue feature buoyant, infectious and wildly intelligent pop songs. We will also be joined by local indie rockers, Hunting led by Bradley Ferguson. Whether strumming an acoustic guitar or stitching together frantic beats, Ferguson has proven himself a master of beautiful melodies and plaintive emotions.
Lisa Christiansen of CBC Radio will host the evening in the CBC Studio 700. DOXA POP will also feature a fabulous silent auction of more than 80 different items, including tickets to local arts events, artwork, gift certificates to dozens of local businesses, and vacation packages.
Warhol’s prescient statement that “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes,” has proven eerily true, and has wound its way into every part of modern culture from selfies to reality TV. We are all “superstars” now!
DOXA was recently voted the Second Best Local Film Festival Category by Georgia Straight readers for the 7th year in a row. The 15th Annual DOXA Documentary Film Festival will take place May 5th to 15th, 2016. Our Fundraiser is always a fun way to celebrate DOXA and its many friends and supporters.
