Twestival Los Angeles 2010: Tonight!

It’s not too late to buy your tickets for tonight’s Twestival LA event. I could spend the next ten minutes of blog post time telling you how awesome it’s going to be (and it is going to be awesome), but I think the event details speak for themselves.

Organizers include local tech + social media mavens like Stacey Soleil, Rynda Laurel, Shira Lazar, Brian Wilkins, Paula Gould and Kimberley Kearney. Every LA-based social media organization worth tweeting with will be there, including Digital LA and Girls in Tech LA. And, entertainment runs the gamut from a pop-up photo booth to a top secret performance by a major musical guest. Not to mention the fact that all proceeds go to Concern Worldwide, a truly worthy cause if ever there was one.

So, buy your tickets now, donate as much as you can and help us raise some money (and some seriously fun social media hell) all at the same time. After all, what else are you going to tweet about tonight?

Twestival 2010 LA: Twestival Brings Social Media Together For Social Good

Reprinted from my earlier post on Girls in Tech.

Girls in Tech LA is very proud to announce our involvement in LA’s very own Twestival on the 25th. Started in 2009, Twestival is a fantastic event that brings together local social media communities in over a hundred cities to raise money for a very worthy cause.  

This year’s LA version of the popular festival is happening at the legendary Roxy Theatre, and proceeds are going to Concern Worldwide — which brings incredible, educational programs to the world’s poorest and most marginalized children. Tickets are only $20, and well worth it, because the event is shaping up to be pretty great.

Our very own GIT LA member Shira Lazar is co-hosting, and entertainment includes Youtube’s official video mixing DJ-Mike Relm,  the TweetMuseum of one-of-a-kind celebrity Twitter art, the Polite in Public Digital Photo booth and 16 year-old DJ prodigy and music blogger Jake Simon. Plus, there’s going to be a surprise performance by a top alternative band that’s currently on tour. Not even we know who it is, but we do know we’re excited to find out.

You can find more info on the GIT LA Facebook page. Hope to see you there!
