Oh wow! This event sounds fucking amazing! I mean, there’s going to be all sorts of crazy society spinoffs like bartending robots, a blessing from the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Hugging Machines, Arts Cars, Doggie Diner heads, etc!!! Fuck yes!

Here’s the official verbiage from the Commonwealth Club:

Ever wonder how Chuck Palahniuk came up with the idea for Fight Club’s secret society of recreational fighters? Or how a giant wooden “man” ended up on fire in the desert, inspiring one of the world’s most radical gatherings? Welcome to the Cacophony Society, an underground group of pranksters whose culture-jamming antics have helped shape the contemporary zeitgeist for the past three decades. Now, from flash mobs and SantaCon to groups like Improv Everywhere and the Yes Men, new generations of instigators are taking a page out of the Cacophony book, driving pranks and events with social media tools.

Join us for the full Cacophony experience as society founders and celebrated members take us through the society’s origins, the importance of play in adult life, and how to kick-start your own culture. Plus, check out some society spinoffs including: bartending robots from RoboGames, a blessing from the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, “Hugging Machines” from artist Kal Spelletich, Art Cars, Doggie Diner heads, video shorts and more!

Sounds dope right? Well guess what? It’s happening on Monday 9/23 and I’ve got a pair of Premium Tickets ($150 value) to giveaway to it! To win just enter using the form below. Just can’t wait to see if you win? You can buy tickets and find out more info about the event here.
