If, unlike Chaos Mandelbrot, you had your eyes open during the Solstice races, you probably saw this month’s latest fashion statement. Most of the race fleet were wearing Woodstock teeshirts!
Francois Jacques made a wonderful pledge to donate $10,000 to Sail4Life if a race team wore her teeshirt advertising Woodstock the next S4L fundraiser, and everyone took her up on it!
It was the same thing during last night’s Leeward Cruise; loads of cruise-heads showed up to sail wearing Woodstock tees, and Jes Kattun even came decked-out in something she rezzed from back in the 1960s (that’s Jes’s backside below). 🙂
So what’s up with WOODSTOCK? Well, it’s a twelve hour non-stop party at NYC this Saturday June 30 with a Woodstock theme, and it’s all to support Cancer Research!
Wait; I’ll let Benny and Francois tell you about it:
Come have fun while experiencing the famous 1969 music festival and contribute to the fight against cancer! “Benny’s Woodstock” is a 12 hr. 1960’s themed Sail for Life party to be held at Nantucket Yacht Club from 9AM to 9PM on June 30, 2012.
Experience a virtual recreation of the “Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music” held on Yasgur’s farm in upstate New York from August 15 to August 18, 1969. Dance and donate to original music performed by Arlo Guthrie, Joan Baez, Santana, Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, CSN&Y, Jimi Hendrix and others compiled by BennyThe Boozehound.
Take the stage dressed as your favorite artist (low prim guitars/instruments only, please). Take a dip in a fresh water pond or play in the mud. Camping and medical attention provided.
Matching donations: you donate 1$L and 3$L or more L$ will be donated to the cause during select songs. Boat/nautical prizes for best psychedelic costumes. Drop in and drop out. Bring your friends!
“Benny’s Woodstock” is a joint NYC/TrYC Production, brought to you by Francois Jacques (Producer), Charlz Price (set), Fiona Haworth (set & scripts) and Runa McMillan (choreography and graphics).
*Music researched and presented by BennyThe Boozehound.*
So, if you’re still having acid flashbacks, you still worry “Is Paul dead?”, and if you get stock tips from Satan by playing old vinyl records backwards, NYC is the place for you this Saturday!
