Winter’s gone on long enough—it’s time to break out, thaw out, and rock out! The best place to start is by watching the Hassle 24 Hour Telethon & Performance Marathon on Somerville Community Access Television on April 7-8.
Each year, the telethon features comedians, short films, performance artists, an overnight drone session, rappers, drag queens, poets, and music acts of all kinds, and all donations go toward raising money for Boston Hassle to sign a lease for an all inclusive, all ages art market/community center/performance space in Somerville!
There will be a viewing party at Aeronaut from 4:30pm-midnight, or drop by SCATv in Union Square and get the vibe of the madness firsthand!
If you’re a Somerville resident you can become a member of SCATv for as little as $50 per year and take advantage of their intern programs such as producing a radio show on Boston Free Radio, working in the video archive, producing stories for Somerville Neighborhood News, or even producing your own television show (such as award-winning cultural show Fallon’s Daily Toast)!
Let this year’s Telethon be your entry point to a whole new world of networking and creativity at SCATv, or just have a drink at Aeronaut and take in the Telethon craziness, or snuggle up at home and stream the Telethon live at bostonhassle.com/telethon/, or watch it on channel 3 and enjoy a taste of the area’s most creative and provocative talent—most of all, just feel good donating to support our local arts community!
