Luscious Jackson will be the house band for Death, Sex & Money at BAM on May 8, 2015 – tickets are $20-25. This is part of RadioLoveFest which features other great shows. Death, Sex & Money is a show about the big questions and hard choices that are often left out of polite conversation. Host Anna Sale—dubbed “the Queen of the Awkward Pause” by Fast Company—talks to people about relationships, money, family and work. This special live staging of Death, Sex & Money will explore the realities of life and marriage with two couples: comedian W. Kamau Bell and Melissa Hudson Bell, Ph.D, and fashion tastemaker Simon Doonan and home décor guru Jonathan Adler.
Should be a fun evening, I’ve got tickets (as a few day belated birthday gift to myself) so if you come out please say hi!
