Washington, DC (Top40 Charts/ National Press Club)
Tickets are now on sale for the most outrageous rock & roll spectacle ever planned for the National
Press Club. Ballroom walls will tremble as McClatchy's Jonathan Landay blazes through blues riffs. As in previous years, Pulitzer-prize-winning Washington Post political cartoonist Tom Toles will expect screaming groupies to slingshot lacy undergarments in his direction. By the end of the ferocious battle, audience members will have voted to anoint "DC's Best Media Band."
A record-breaking lineup of seven musical acts has been confirmed for Journopalooza III. Four notorious veterans of the Journopalooza stage return by popular demand: Charm Offensive, Dirty Bomb, Nobody's Business, and Suspicious Package. Preparing for their debut appearances at the annual event, Journopalooza welcomes: The Stepping Stones, a Monkees cover band fronted by two Washington Post reporters; the folky eclectic sounds of Rebecca Christie & Peter Fields, whose talented singer spends her days at Bloomberg; and classic rockers NRBK, whose members have a combined professional history of more than 50 years in media.
The evening will be hosted by DC's Funniest Journalists, co-winners of Commedia dell Media II, Military.com's Jamie McIntyreand FOX Business Network's Rich Edson. Flying Dog beer will be flowing from five cash bars after doors open at 7. Additional fun and fabulosity made possible with the generous support of the Recording Industry Association of America, BAE Systems, and the Brunswick Group. Proceeds from Journopalooza benefit three great media causes: The Committee to Protect Journalists/Journalist Assistance Program, The Eric Friedheim National Journalism Library, and Reporters Without Borders.
General admission tickets are $25 in advance, and $30 at the door. Tickets, including an exclusive VIP package with an open bar meet-and-greet with the media/rockstars, are available at www.Journopalooza.com.
