Short Description: 
Eastern Sunz LIVE - TONIGHT!

How would it sound if Duke Ellington, Jerry Garcia, Sam Cooke, Kool Herc & Shinehead gathered 'round a firepit and jammed?

Award-winning hip-hop/music duo, Eastern Sunz, are the result of the jam session between legendary lyricists and musicians. Their lyrics and sound are unique to them, infusing well-known themes with Pacific NW backdrops, but also reminiscent of classic beats and rhythms.

Officially on the scene in 2001 with the release of their first album, you can hear the past decade in the increasing sophistication of their sound and see that growth in the awards earned, especially in the past year!

An Interview with KELLY CARLIN

program date: 
Thu, 05/10/2012

Through storytelling, classic video footage, and family memorabilia, Kelly Carlin, the only child of iconoclastic comedian George Carlin, chronicles over 40 years of her life with her famous father. A funny, poignant and honest look at the man who not only redefined 20th century comedy, but inspired generations of comedy fans with such classic routines as Hippie Dippie Weatherman, Class Clown, The Seven Dirty Words, A Place for Your Stuff, and Modern Man. Kelly reveals what it was like to be swept up into the life and career of her father from his early days as a straight comic through his transformation into a counter culture hero and iconoclastic social commentator to the very last days of his life.
