WRJ parking lot party back on for Friday, and Revolution is looking for models for fall fashion show

1. PARKING LOT PARTY

Fingers crossed for clear skies! This is the White River Junction party that was supposed to happen on the First Friday in August, which Alex Hanson wrote about in an edition of Art Notes. For details on the second attempt, click here.

2. CALL FOR MODELS

The places to be on this beautiful Friday in the Upper Valley

Shop all day and party all night (or, at least, until about 10 p.m.):

Just me walkin’ around WRJ with a pile of clothes from the tent sale. nbd.

Ibex may be gone, but there’s a stash of a ‘few hundred pieces’ in downtown WRJ

That would be at Revolution, according to the shop’s Instagram feed. Read all of our coverage of Ibex closing up shop.

White River Junction: It’s not so bad, and in fact, it’s the place to be this weekend

One little village, one big weekend.

Some highlights:

At the Center for Cartoon Studies’ Colodny Building tonight, from 6:30-8:30 p.m., cartoon school alum D.W. will be on hand to introduce the new Irene Anthology Exhibit (see photo, above) and answer the public’s questions.

What is the Irene Anthology, you ask? Via CCS: “Spanning six issues, three years, and all seven continents, the Irene Anthology defies all limitations. Editors and founders of Irene Andy Warner ‘12, D.W. ‘12, and Dakota McFadzean ‘12 brought together over 50 contributors to create one of the most ambitiously eclectic anthologies in CCS history. Original pages from Irene will be on display in the CCS Gallery from October 7 to December 1.”

Across town at the Main Street Museum, it’s Hocus Pocus, a spooky First Friday dance party including tarot card, crystal ball and palm readings; a photo booth; bonfire and ghost stories, and more! The party starts at 8 p.m.

Tomorrow night, Revolution is hosting its semi-annual fashion show and JAG Productions is hosting a pregame party (to benefit its ongoing fundraiser to sustain black theater in the Upper Valley), both of which Amanda hyped earlier this week.

If you haven’t experienced a Rev fashion show yet, read all about the history of the event in our 2015 story in Enterprise, the Valley News’ monthly business magazine. Plus, Seven Days weighs in on the show in its latest issue, highlighting one of the show’s great strengths: its diversity.

“The upcycled clothing shop’s annual Tip Top Couture Fashion Extravaganza … includes just about anyone who wants to get onstage,” Sadie Williams writes in 7D. “The models are young or old, thin or full-bodied, male- or female-presenting.”
