Orbit DVD owner and event organizer Marc McCloud is seeking performances from Asheville’s “seriously talented” and “sorta talented” for a variety show benefiting local musician Priya Ray. Lack of mobility stemming from a debilitating spinal injury in 1999 has spurred Ray to raise funds to purchase a wheelchair-accessible van — an asset that would enable her continued pursuits of performance and photography. “We are actively seeking the best and the worst Asheville has to offer,” reads the benefit event page. “You can be a superstar for seven minutes!” The Boing Show talent show, perhaps the wackiest of a slew of events held nationwide on Ray’s behalf, takes place at Toy Boat Community Art Space on Sunday, March 8, at 7 p.m. $7 suggested donation, plus food by donation. avl.mx/0po.
