The Los Angeles Rumpus Event: You Want to Know, What Makes a Raffle, A Porn Raffle?

Detail of the Reading Chair you can win.

This is where I tell you about The Rumpus combining forces with Origami, our surprise porn actress guest, and the raffle prices you can win: Porn prize, I love Echo Park prize, and Leisurely Reading Prize. Oh, and did I mention it’s only $5

This Saturday September 10!

4 p.m. At the Echoplex

Origami, The Rumpus, and The Echo: Oh My!

Today I stopped by Origami Vinyl and chatted with Neil and pet his dog. (OK. I’m a dog lover and always go into Origami to pet the dog and pretend to look at records. I don’t have a record player.) It just so happens that on the afternoon of September 10, Origami is presenting  The Origami Dodger Takeover at The Echo the and The Rumpus is presenting The Los Angeles Rumpus: It’s About Time at the Echoplex. Which, as you probably know, means there’ll be a party happening upstairs and a party happening downstairs at The Echo. So we got to talking about and we decided we’re combining events. We just need to open up the staircase. Honestly: how hard can that be?

He said, Your people might be scared if they come up the stairs because we have hardcore punk bands.

I said, Your people might be scared because we’re having a porn raffle.

What? he asked.

Yeah, I said.

Why?

Why not?

He paused and I explained that during San Francisco Rumpus they have a porn raffle events and so really, it’s a Rumpus raffle tradition.

Adrianna Luna will be the Rumpus Event. Say hi!

Porn Raffle Details

People keep asking me: Zoë,  what exactly is a porn raffle?

I should say, Wait and see. Or be mysterious in some other way but I’m terrible at being mysterious and games and such.

To answer the question, in a very matter-of-fact way, essentially, there are two things that make a porn raffle.

Number One1 out 3 prizes is a FREE monthly subscription to Kink.com.

Number Two: The very lovely and sexy Adriana Luna will announce winners from the porn raffle and hand out the prizes.

But I don’t like porn. What kind of prizes do you have for me. 

Fine. So you don’t like porn. I get it. We have two other prizes you can win for your kind.

Prize #2: We Love Echo Park Prize

In this prize you can win:

1 lb.of coffee from FIX

$20 gift certificate from Stories

Prize #3: Leisurely Reading

Reading Chair

Krystalyne is a crafty lady who has made a reading chair that you can win at this Rumpus raffle. She made part of it out of one on my favorite childhood books: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

But that’s not all!

Also a Rumpus Write Like a Motherfucker coffee mug and a $20 gift certificate from Skylight Books.

So you can sit in this chair, drink coffee, and read a book you bought at a local bookstore.
