Journopalooza, the charity event that showcases the bands of local journalists is on for Friday, March 9. The “Battle of the Bands” style performance pits the bands against each other and returning winner, Suspicious Package, features Tom Toles from WashPost. The interesting thing here is that Toles will be going up against…. himself. He’s also in Lethal Bark. Other bands include The Charm Offensive, fronted by former Yahoo! News’s former scribe Chris Lehmann, Dirty Bomb, led by Reuters correspondent Andy Sullivan and Paddy Goes West featuring brothers Dennis Dunlavey and Tom Dunlavey. Dennis is Sr. Washington Editor for ABC and Tom is the managing editor for CNN’s Washington bureau. Proceeds will go to benefit Writopia and REACH, Incorporated, which promote literacy and writing for DC youth.
