Happy Hour Featuring Alan Bigelow
Join us at a virtual Happy Hour featuring noted e-lit artist Alan Bigelow and the cast from his ensemble web comedy, The Forever Club, on Friday, June 5, 2020 at 5 P.M. EDT/2 P.M. PDT via Zoom.
The Forever Club is a 6-episode series created as mash-up of videos, texts, interactive elements, and visual remnants of social media about the antics of four very close friends Jordan, CJ, Karen, and Gabe. At the Happy Hour we will screen Episode 3, “Let’s Get Drunk,” where the friends challenge each other to a drinking contest. Bigelow and members of the cast will be on hand to talk about the work and its production.
No matter how strange things get, and no matter how strained the moments between the four of them, they remain friends. Forever. #spreadthelove
The event is BYOB, but we’ll supply the fun!
