Political satirist Will Durst’s popular show Boomeraging: From LSD to OMG will be held at Bend’s Volcanic Theatre Pub inside the Century Center at 7:30pm, Monday, May 12.
Celeste Franklin, veteran touring comic from Seattle, now a KPOV deejay living in Bend, will open for Durst. KPOV deejay Mike Ficher will emcee the show.
“Boomeraging,” says Durst, is “my tribute to the joys, achievements and looming terrors that accompany being a member of the Baby Boom Generation.” His rollicking 85-minute heartfelt monologue encourages boomers to refuse to grow old in the face of gravity no matter how many times they forget their online banking security question.
The benefit performance for KPOV, 88.9 fm is presented by BIGS Hydroponics & Organics. Century Center is located at 70 SW Century Drive in Bend.
In addition to BIGS, sponsors include Doubletree by Hilton in Bend, JR’s Body and Paint, Zydeco Kitchen & Cocktails, Lisa Bertalan and Ken Brinich of Hendrix, Brinich & Bertalan, LLP, the Center for Car Donations, Kristin Morris at Connect Hearing, Lulu’s Boutique, Marcia Koff Watercolors and wabi sabi/cool Japanese stuff.
