Mollie Price: Powerful Woman of 2010!

Powerful woman! Note the awesome sash.

Aw man, the Bus is so proud. Yesterday, three of the awesome folks from Powerful Voices came to Bus HQ to surprise our very own Mollie Price with a huge honor – the Powerful Woman of the Year Award, their recognition of Mollie’s amazing work with young people, young women, and everyone else lucky enough to be in her orbit.

We’re proud, naturally, and we want to embarrass Mollie as much as possible (because we’re coo like that). To that end, here are more pictures of Mollie receiving her award, and we encourage you to lavish praise upon her in the comments. Let’s make her blush – she deserves it!

If You Can’t Come Doorbelling…

Have you ever wondered what an Alt-Rap artist like Aesop Rock would sound like if he rapped over beats that don’t sound like kitchen utensils banging against each other? If so, then you need to be at the Dark Time Sunshine release party at Neumos tomorrow night (4/15).  Dark Time

Sunshine comprises of Seattle stalwart Onry Ozzborn (Grayskul) and Portland producer Zavala.  The album features Aesop Rock and P.O.S. very much in their elements as well as Portland soul singer Reva Devito.

Playing alongside Dark Time Sunshine is super-producer Jake One, Bus-friends Mash Hall, Tilson of the Saturday Knights, Helladope, Night Fox and DJ Swerveone.  The show is 21+ and is only $10 if you buy your ticket in advance.
