11th Annual Pig Roast

featuring the A.D.D. Show & AC & the Word Mechanics

SETH and Art Compost & the Word Mechanics along with The  A.D.D. Show will perform at the 11th Annual  Juan Sanchez Plaza HOA Pig Roast. An annual fund-raiser, this year’s Pig Roast is raising funds for the non-profit First Descent.  First Descent provides outdoor adventures for young adults diagnosed with cancer.

The A.D.D. Show features Alice Frisch, Daniel Gordon and David Fermanich, guitarists and singers all, who combine their love of pop, folk, rock, jazz and blues into amazing harmonies and toe-tapping rhythms.

As the name Pig Roast implies, an entire pig will be roasted, side dishes and beer provided along with live music, raffles and other activities. The fund-raiser is family-friendly and held outdoors. Suggested donation $25 though all donations are accepted.

33rd Avenue and Clay Street, Denver, CO. Enter through alleys on 33rd or Clay Street.
