The Rocket Queen Reviews The Evil Bunny & Light In The Attic Party!

“That’s just what I got at Saturday’s Evil Bunny Films soiree in Ballard. Evil Bunny proprietress (and birthday girl) Jennifer Maas knows how to throw a serious bash. Three floors of revelry were in effect, including a top floor tequila balcony, a basement set up for committed Dance Dance Revolution and Guitar Hero players, plus a backyard BBQ and bonfire. It was a friendly, energetic mix of local indie-film-industry folk and music peeps, including Neumo’s co-owner Steven Severin, Light in the Attic owners Matt Sullivan and Josh Wright (riding high on their recent signing of the Blakes), and KEXP music director Don Yates. Ever the gracious hostess, Maas managed to spend equal time tearing up the dance floor and weaving her way through the crowd with platters of mini corn dogs for her guests. She also updated me on the progress of Wheedle’s Groove, her forthcoming documentary about the early Seattle soul and funk scene. “We are in early postproduction now,” she happily reported. “We’re editing, cataloging, picking up beauty shots, and tracking down archival footage. We hope to finish by the end of this year and do film festivals in the spring, which would probably mean official release in the winter of 2008.” Sounds to me like a fine excuse for another party.” –Hannah Levin, Seattle Weekly
