Evil Wine Radio Carnival

Sunday, Sept. 25 at Visual Arts Collective


If you feel deprived of debauchery on Sunday night when the weekend hasn't lived up to its craziness potential, the Evil Wine Radio Carnival will be an excuse to act out in the name of community radio. Billed as an "alternative to the Sabbath," the Evil Wine Carnival promises to be the kookiest time you'll have in a month of Sundays.

The event offers carnival games tainted by adult (non)sensibilities, including the opportunity to peg band members and Radio Boise DJs with onions, a coin toss involving gallon liquor bottles and what is being promoted as the least kid-friendly game of ring toss ever invented. Games cost $5 and less to play and offer a chance to win prizes from local vendors like Indie Made, North End Organic Nursery and Radio Boise. Local vendors, including Archie's Place and Mother Falcon Produce, will get in on the carnival madness with food and assorted prizes.

Evil Wine Carnival also features performances by an eclectic assortment of local bands, including Goat Head, How's Your Family?, Junior Rocket Scientist and RevoltRevolt, as well as Twin Falls-based bands Methhouse Party Band, Sister Wounds and Hedtriip.

Local comedians and theater troupes take over between sets so the live entertainment never stops.

Proceeds from the carnival support Radio Boise, the city's only non-commercial community radio station.
