gotta plug for Kuumba and earthquake relief

I wouldn't retain my title of #1 Kuumba groupie if I didn't pub their 35th Annual Christmas Concert, "We Have Heard Angels," coming up this Friday and Saturday at Mem Church. My sources tell me the Friday show is already sold out, so hurry on over to the Box Office to snag a free ticket for Saturday before they disappear faster than free Felipes. If you've never been to a Kuumba concert, trust me--you won't regret it, and you won't forget it. If you're a veteran, you know what I'm talking about, so no excuses!

For a refresher on Kuumba and why I think it's awesome, check out my earlier post and an ensuing discussion on how or whether Kuumba fosters an important kind of community.

I'd be remiss if I didn't also shout out another exciting performance coming up this Saturday: Comedy for a Cause 2005, all proceeds of which will be donated to earthquake relief efforts in South Asia. Again, hit up the Box Office before this show sells out, too. Tickets are 10 bucks in advance with your student ID and 12 dollars at the door. See you there!

In case you didn't hear about it (or happen to see the front page of the Crimson over breakfast), the HCC and Earthquake Coalition managed to raise 10,000 dollars with the Comedy show this saturay.

Thank you to all those who came out and supported the cause!!

I'd like to keep this post upbeat, and I do really want to emphasize how positive this display of community action was. However, I do think it'd be interesting to hear how some people reacted to the show (and particularly to the types of jokes that the last two comedians were making).
Rest assured that the planning committee put a lot of energy into recruiting appealing comedians. But, should someone have drawn the line somewhere? Is it ok to say anything as long as its a joke? Isn't this an easy thing to hide behind? (I'm referring to Lisa Lampinelli here. The last artist of the night).

How did ya'll react?
