KeroWACKED Mulit-media Fest is Sunday April 24, 2016 11-11 PM!

The KeroWACKED® 

Outdoor Multimedia Festival is Back! 

SUNDAY, APRIL 24, 2016

KeroWACKED® is a MultiMedia Fest celebrating the life and work of  

Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Neal Cassady and the Beat Generation.  

"It's that energy the Boynton Beach Arts District -- that fervent, funky DIY arts engine -- has seized upon for its annual celebration of the beatnik spirit. It's on its third KeroWACKED, which, as with most BBAD events, is the brainchild of resident sprite/evil genius Rolando Chang Barrero." -Fire Ant New Times

The Beat Generation was a group of authors whose literature explored and influenced American culture in the post-World War II era. 
The bulk of their work was published and popularized throughout the 1950s.
Central elements of Beat culture are rejection of standard narrative values, the spiritual quest, exploration of American and Eastern religions, rejection of materialism, explicit portrayals of the human condition, experimentation with psychedelic drugs, and sexual liberation and exploration.
Allen Ginsberg's Howl (1956), William S. Burroughs’s Naked Lunch (1959) and Jack Kerouac's On the Road (1957) are among the best known examples of Beat literature.
In the 1960s, elements of the expanding Beat movement were incorporated into the hippie and larger counterculture movements. Neal Cassady, as the driver for Ken Kesey's bus, Further, was the primary bridge between these two generations. Allen Ginsberg's work also became an integral element of early 1960s hippie culture.
