News:: Support Local Film with SOBAMA!

If you're a repeat visitor to the hill, you've likely read something about Rebekah Higgs before - either from her solo work, or as the Ruby Jean portion of Ruby Jean and the Thoughtful Bees. Well, what you might not know, is that she also has a radio show here at CKDU in Halifax called SOBAMA!

If you find that news intriguing, this is as good a week as any to tune in, as Rebekah will be attempting to raise funds that will go towards helping to fund the completion of her friend Laura Dawe's debut film The Inevitability of Something that Once Felt Impossible. Those curious about the film should check out The Coast's recent article on it. Here's the SOBAMA details for this afternoon:

The goal is to raise $1000 in an hour and a half, while playing tunes from the Films Soundtrack and hosting the lovely film maker herself along with Producer Jason Levangie in studio.

For a Donation of $100 your name will be listed in the “Thank You” Credits at the end of the film.

For Donation of $200 you will be in the thank you credits as well as having YOUR FACE PAINTED INTO THE FILMS MURAL!!! (This makes you a celebrity! or someone you love)

For any Donation under $100 you can request a song and your name will be entered into a draw to win 1 of 4 pairs of SENNHEISER headphones valued at $100!!!!


That's a lot of exclamation points right there, so you know they mean business. The local-act laden soundtrack also means business:

DOG DAY
JANE VAIN and the DARK MATTER
RUBY JEAN and the THOUGHTFUL BEES
JON MCKIEL
THE HOLD
OMENRA
REBEKAH HIGGS
KILL SQUARES
FRIENDLY DEMENSION
MUSEUM PIECES
SCRIBBLER

So then, check out the show today from 2:30-4 pm on CKDU 88.1 FM or www.ckdu.ca.
