An invitation to ‘An Artclectic Evening’

(Apologies to Laura Stromberg and Kinky Friedman for not getting this story in the pages of my most frequented publications – space was limited and notice was short. What’s a reporter to do?)

On February 10, you need to find yourself at Dallas’ Nokia Theatre.

The AetheriA group, in association with the Communities Foundation of Texas, is putting on a special fundraising at the Nokia Theatre. Featuring Willie Nelson, the Ft. Worth Symphony Orchestra, Jessica Simpson, the Dallas Black Dance Theatre and a special performance by Cirque du Soleil, ‘An Artclectic Evening’ looks to be a once-in-a-lifetime event.

The night’s master of ceremonies is none other than Kinky Friedman.

“And the cause couldn’t be better,” he said during an interview on Thursday, February 1.

I am inclined to agree with him.

Proceeds from the concert and companion silent auctions – which will include Jessica Simpson’s boots, several autographed guitars, one of Morgan Fairchild’s dresses, and a Jackass DVD collection signed by Johnny Knoxville – will be donated to the Communities Foundation of Texas. The foundation will then distribute the money by way of art scholarships, given to children of underprivileged families.

Most of the tickets are $50-$100. Tables and dinner seats, most of which are spoken for already, run about $1,000 apiece.

“But I guarantee, you will never see anything like it,” said Kinky. “Willie Nelson with the Ft. Worth Symphony Orchestra is going to be just fantastic. This is going to be one hell of a show.”

You heard the man. Get thee to Ticketmaster!
