Found Magazine’s Denim and Diamonds Tour

Davy and Peter Rothbart share their latest trashy finds

Forrest Gump had it wrong. Life isn’t like a box of chocolates; it’s like a rancid trash heap of discarded junior high diaries, ‘80s prom photos, and scrawled-on Post-its that tell the strange, hopeful, heartbreaking and hilarious stories of riotous characters we’ll never meet. Having documented these found relics both online and in a bestselling book series, Davy and Peter Rothbart, the self-described heartthrobs behind the phenomenally entertaining enterprise, took things a step further with Requiem for a Paper Bag, Celebrities and Civilians Tell Stories of the Best Lost, Tossed, and Found Items from Around the World. The basis for their Found Magazine’s Denim and Diamonds Tour, Requiem is a collection of tales of Dumpster finds by well-known stars such as Public Enemy’s Chuck D and The Wire’s David Simon. The Rothbarts read today, with sword-swallower Brett Loudermilk and LA’s honey-voiced Watson Twins on hand to deliver the party favors. 7:30 p.m. St. Arnold’s Brewery, 2522 Fairway Park Drive. For information, call 713-868-2101 or visit www.foundmagazine.com. $10 to $15.
