Lebowski Fest: West Coast Tour



Mark it 8, Dude. Over 2,000 Achievers made the pilgrimage to Louisville's 8th Annual Lebowski Fest this past weekend with comedy by Rob Riggle (Daily Show, The Hangover) and music by Black Diamond Heavies. (Full recap below)

Lebowski Fest 2009 is takin' ‘er easy for sinners all over America, starting with the West Coast. The Speed of Sound Tour Bus starts in Seattle on Monday, July 20th, with a very special event. Jeff ‘The Dude' Dowd – the inspiration for the main character in the Coen Brothers' classic, and member of the real-life ‘Seattle Seven' (it was him and six other guys) – will be honored in a homecoming ceremony at the Lebowski Fest Seattle Movie Party at Fremont Outdoor Cinema, in conjunction with The Fremont Arts Council and Fremont Chamber of Commerce. He will receive the first ever “Fremont Keys to the Universe”: recognizing outstanding example in the creation of a compelling urban mythology and enduring character that epitomizes Fremont's larger than life spirit and upholds its motto: 'Delibertus Quirkus: Freedom to be Peculiar.'

Lord, you can imagine where it goes from there. The Speed of Sound Tour rolls on through Portland, the Bay Area, and San Diego, featuring musical performances by Har Mar Superstar. Har Mar is currently working on his dance quintet and will be re-enacting the Landlord's interpretive dance. Come September, Lebowski Fest picks up where it left off in Denver and cruises on through all the way to the East Coast, and finally comes to rest in Austin, TX in October.
