In writing this I know I run the risk of coming across as an elitist snob, but I honestly couldn't care less about tomorrow's barbaric and absurd national ritual. (I'm talking about the Superbowl, not church.) If you're with me and are looking for something else to do while the rest of America watches dudes touch each other in the only manner and context our culture sanctions, consider the following:
The Riot Folk Collective, a group of self proclaimed "radical folk musicians," have organized an anti-Superbowl concert and potluck at Sweet Water Organic Community Farm (6942 W. Comanche Ave. Tampa, FL) this Sunday night at 8pm. The show is part of Riot Folk's "Respect Yer Mama" bicycle tour. That's right, they're touring from Orlando to Miami BY BICYCLE. Take if from someone that gets nervous traversing Florida in her Honda Civic and does not look like a crazed hippie: that takes guts.
I've never heard these characters before, but I'm sure their show will be infinitely more entertaining than the alternative. Who knows? I may even score an organic hotwing at the potluck!
