Found Magazines Denim and Diamonds Tour
Forrest Gump had it wrong. Life isnt like a box of chocolates; its 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 well 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 Magazines Denim and Diamonds Tour, Requiem is a collection of tales of Dumpster finds by well-known stars such as Public Enemys Chuck D and The Wires David Simon. The Rothbarts read today, with sword-swallower Brett Loudermilk and LAs honey-voiced Watson Twins on hand to deliver the party favors. 7:30 p.m. St. Arnolds Brewery, 2522 Fairway Park Drive. For information, call 713-868-2101 or visit www.foundmagazine.com. $10 to $15.
