THE TOWNIES BLOCK PARTY LIVE FROM TOPA MOUNTAIN WINERY: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 30

The Townies Podcast celebrates 8,000 downloads with a free block-party-style get-together and live stories!

 

From Ventura County’s own Kim Maxwell Studio and The Townies Podcast comes a LIVE storytelling event! Free to attend, this Block Party hosted by beautiful Topa Mountain Winery will have it all: LIVE stories, LIVE music, LIVE t-shirt screen-printing and food & drink for purchase!

Starting at 6:30 PM on Saturday, September 30th, the evening will kick off with some lovely live music from local musician Tom Lennon and company. Live storytelling (which will run less than an hour) will begin at 7:30 including fan-favorite performances by Tatum Becker, Megan Bergkvist, Lily Brown, Sarah Hartigan, Jim Lashly, Noah Lashly, Christopher Newell, Sarahi Noyola & Betsy Randle (from Disney’s Boy Meets World)!

The Townies Podcast is a radio-style project from Kim Maxwell Studio, launched in March of this year. Featuring the original stories of the local folks from Kim Maxwell’s celebrated writing & performance workshops (including a mélange of folks, from lawyers, baristas and students to cashiers, dentists and the unemployed), the podcast is described by one reviewer as “Prairie Home Companion, high on fermented Pixie tangerines.”

Townies merchandise will be available for purchase alongside great grub from family-owned Oak View restaurant, El Charro and wonderful wine from host Topa Mountain Winery, located at 821 W. Ojai Avenue, Ojai CA.
