Two Bike Month Events (May)

The famous HopeDance Bike FiLM Festival, part of Bike Month, is going to be held on May 18 and 19th, 2007.

HopeDance is looking for spectacular bike-themed short films to show for the Friday night (May 18) screening of the winning entries (and with Beer!).

The short films should be original, short, 10 minutes or less and bike themed as in yay-bikes, or a very strong cars-suck message. We’re not looking for art here, just good old propaganda that will move the audience to go home and set fire to their SUVs. The deadline for submissions is Friday, April 20, 2007.
(bike happening encourages you to submit “art” films to FiLM fest & BikeSHIFT)

Call 544-9663 for details of how to submit short films.

1st prize: $150 cash (which may go up as the deadline nears).
2nd prize: $50 gift certificate to Bike Works
3rd prize: $20 gift certificate to ARTerty..

Saturday‘s Films (May 19) will feature “Contested Streets” and “PEDAL”



A bike themed art show promoting an awareness of bicycles in all of their shapes, sizes and interpretations.

Art-bikes and other media welcome. Submissions to the show are being accepted through April 22.

Come to the artists reception for live music and more.

Friday May 4th from 5-9 pm
848 Monterey (Old Pier One Building)

Boom Box Difficulties - try again next month

Thanx to all you Happeners who brought boom boxes to the Happening. If you couldn’t tune into Happening Radio, it’s not your fault.

The engineers experienced technical difficulties, and the signal was too weak to be received by most radios. They tried something new and something went wrong.

But save your batteries for next month. Happening Radio has rocked us recently, it WILL be back like a movie star governor.

Actually, buy new batteries. They’re not likely to last for 2 ‘bike nights.’
This message has been brought to you by Dollar Store Batteries, the best batteries you can shuck for a buck.
