High Thrills At Twentywonder Bash

12 07 2011

Twentywonder, the 2nd annual “Carnival of The Mind” was hands down one of thee essential events of the summer. The action packed fundraiser for the Down Syndrome Association of Los Angeles never disappointed. From the circus performers to the lighting fast derby action, Twentywonder was never dull.

As soon as you walked into the Doll Factory parking lot you knew things were gonna be different in all the right ways. From being greeted by a very creepy looking circus performer on stilts, to the kick ass League of Steam tent filled with oddities of the paranormal, Twentywonder was bustling.

In the main hall laid the original Batmobile in all its glory and splendor, gizmos and contraptions from hacker collective Crash Space, live insects and bug collations’, local artist spotlights and very funny Ed Asner reading Dr. Seuss books to a gleaming crowd.

The match between the Los Angeles all-star team the Ri-Ettes and San Diego Wildfires was fierce from the start. After the national anthem was sung by punk rock royalty Exene the roller bank became battleground. We never experienced derby up close and personal. It’s a pretty intense sport players were taking spills, left and right. The Ri-Ettes took the game 65 to 45.

The night went on to host amazing performances from the hilarious Axis of Awesome, Exene Cervenka, and of course Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, who stirred up the crowd like a swarm of bees when the first note screeched out of the amp like a bat out of hell.

Twentywonder was an amazing night for an amazing cause. Everybody involved with the event was super excited to be at Twentywonder, especially all the Derby Dolls, who were thrilled to host the event. The entire event was filled with a great festive vibe and Twentywonder shows us all what a fundraiser and community involvement is all about. We will be looking forward to next year’s event.
