Join Leigh Combs and Dixie Treichel for a special pledge drive show
With artist Jane Evershed, Chef Lisa, and a pre-recorded KFAI interview with Comedienne Margaret Cho
Mother, Artist, Activist, Poet, Writer and Presenter
Jane will be exhibiting in the ArtRage Gallery show "100 Years of Women Rockin' The World" to celebrate the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day
The Jane Evershed Art Collection has operated nationwide since 1989. Uniting the power of the pen with the boldness of the brush, The Great Leap of Faith: Now is The Time of Woman, expands into a passionate philosophy that has coursed Jane Evershed's spirit-blood since her youth. Her art shines with a bright glow gleaned from the colors of life as a young woman in Africa. At times humorous, Jane deftly tackles injustice as well as inspiring women to their true power to ready themselves en-masse for seats at the table of Global Consequence. She believes we must counter the images of violence and indoctrination that have been burned into our brains by mainstream media.
Evershed reveals an ongoing interest in seeing humanitarian justice highlighted in the world. Her art shamelessly exposes the major injustices incurred by the existing global system that shapes our lives and seeks to determine our future. In celebration of this early millennium Jane created an art genre called Terra-ism meaning Earth Love, which speaks to the deep connection that human beings have to the Earth, almost forgotten today in our excessive, synthetic, nature-starved existences.
Margaret Cho moved from the State Theater to the Pantages Theater
Margaret Cho’s new show is a healthy mix of new stand-up and live music. In the spirit of Cho’s diverse identity and equally diverse career, Cho Dependent features her burgeoning foray into the realm of comedy music. Peppered throughout her brand new stand up show, Cho will be showcasing a few songs from her forthcoming album, Cho Dependent, (released on August 24th) which features collaborations with Tegan & Sara, Ani DiFranco, Andrew Bird, Jon Brion, Grant Lee Phillips, and more. Music is a new endeavor for the provocative comedian, who's built a cult following through tours, concert films and TV specials. Cho’s fifth stand up concert film, Beautiful, is now available on Showtime and DVD, and Cho is also starring in the new dramatic series, Drop Dead Diva, the second season coming this June on Lifetime. Cho’s new stand up show, Cho Dependent, features her trademark raunchy, socially relevant and politically-charged comedy, and also offers a unique chance to see her perform a handful of songs from her new comedy music album, Cho Dependent.
