How The Black Cat Festival Got Our Attention

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Upon arriving last night, someone placed a postcard on my doorstep reading: "Sorry Zack. You need to be at least 65 to attend."

It was a postcard for the Black Cat Festival 2: A Fine Art Fashion Film Music Performance Design Riot that is apparently 6 buildings long. I like the Black Cat Gallery in Culver City, so whoever this agent of targeted press relations is, they are sort of a crooked genius. If you want your event spoken about, all you have to do is...

A. Stalk writer and leave mysterious press info on doorstep at personal home
B. Spell writer's name incorrectly (H, not K)
C. Make fun of writer within the information (even if it the joke was sorta odd)
D. Leave without being noticed
