O-Town Reads Event HBO film: Class/Divide Public Viewing

Focusing strongly on an intersection. One side sits Avenues: The World School, a private K- 12 institution with annual tuition close to $50,000 a year. On the other side sits the Chelsea-Elliot Houses,' the projects'. And overlooking their playground is a newly built $10 million townhouse.
The film contains interviews of the adults and kids of 10th Avenue—those affiliated with the private school and those living in the projects.
Luc Hawkins, a 16-year-old Avenues student, says, “Walking past the Chelsea housing projects, people look at me differently, …as if I’m a white, rich preppy kid. And they probably think that I’m looking at them as poor people who are inferior to me just because I have more resources.” An 11 year old from the projects says, " They use all of our parks, but they don't like us.
Free and Open to the Public.

Porter Union with special guest Ricky Fugitt

Porter Union with special guest Ricky Fugitt

Porter Union, led by husband and wife, Cole Michael Porter and Kendra Porter, is the result of the two old souls spending the better part of the last decade traveling the country together to play their music everywhere from the dive bars and honky tonks to festivals and theaters. When you hear the story of Cole and Kendra meeting in a hometown bar, falling in love while writing and playing together, it sounds like fairy tale built by corporate music row. Luckily, that’s where the comparison stops - you won’t find overproduced, cliche filled songs here. Their honest approach to songwriting combines raw emotional themes with a traditional country sound to bring the listener into the story. It’s no surprise they’ve shared a stage with a variety of notable artists including Cody Jinks, Jason Boland & the Stragglers, Whitey Morgan, and David Allan Coe.
