MY FORT WORTH: Make Love, Not War - Sunday benefit for Peaceful Vocations


PEACEFUL VOCATIONS fundraiser on March 25, 2007, to feature North Texas jazz legends Dennis Gonzalez and Jhon Kahsen

MAKE ART, NOT WAR is the title of the fundraiser scheduled for Sunday, March 25th, 2007, 6-9pm, at Arts Fifth Avenue (1628 5th Avenue), which will benefit Peaceful Vocations, a local organization which serves high school youth--who are of military recruitment age--by offering info and resource options to enlistment.

MAKE ART, NOT WAR will bring to the stage, for the first time on the same bill, two North Texas avant-garde jazz veterans: Dennis Gonzalez with Yells at Eels, and Jhon Kahsen (nee Johnny Case) with his Anarkestra.

Kahsen, longtime resident pianist at Sardine’s Italian Ristorante and visual artist, and Gonzalez, the Dallas-based trumpeter and educator, will each perform with their bands, but may also perform an impromptu improvisational segment together for the first time.

Notable local spoken word artists Silence, Froze, and Zoe Pardee will each perform an original poem. Video art, visual art, and information about Peaceful Vocations will also be presented.

Admission: $10 sliding scale--includes hors d’oeuvres.
