spare the air festival.
We here at Whisper are interested in random, seemingly unrelated things. It is a rare occasion when two or more of our interests converge into one magical moment and thankfully, I am the one lucky enough to write about it. On August 30, 2008, the South Coast Air Quality Management District combines our love for public and alternative transportation with our love of music in their Spare The Air Festival. Spare The Air is an all-ages outdoor music festival created to raise awareness of clean air issues, public transportation options, alternative fuels and energies, and global warming. Musical acts are diverse and include The Used, Lit, and Saosin as well as Whisper faves Peanut Butter Wolf, Free the Robots, and DJ Pubes of Dance Right fame manning the appropriately named Ozone Dance Tent.
The event will be held at the Fullerton Transportation Center (aka the Santa Fe Depot Parking Lot) on Commonwealth and Harbor. Tickets are only ten bucks and some change.
Random Fact: I Like To Whisper Too... Founder Kim worked at the Knowlwood Burger on the very same block where the festival will be held. Nice place to get a good shake, malt, or burger. Oh yeah, they serve beer.
