Somerville arts fans try telethon to build an arts space in the city

Boston Hassle's telethon goes live at 10 a.m. on March 4 on the Somerville cable-access channel and runs through 10 a.m. the next day.

Backers hope to use funds raised from the 24 hours of "science experiments, poetry, sketch comedy, presentations, demonstrations, live music, music videos, children’s reading time, magicians, sad pet tricks, puppets [and] drag" to secure "an independent art space/venue somewhere in the city."

People without access to Somerville cable TV will be able to listen online.

I'm not clear from the article or the website, It's Boston Hassle on Somerville TV so when they somewhere in the city, what city do they mean?

I would have assumed they would have picked something other than a weekday- yes, I know its Friday, but still- for a 24-hour telethon
On a semi-related note- I can't be the only person who thinks SCATV does an incredibly poor job with the program listings on their website

SCATV.

This is gonna be cool. Last week everyone was harping artists leaving Boston and the city not being able to "support" artists. Welp, here is a group of folks who started a non-profit and are working toward establishing a new, independent art space. Everyone crying into their craft beer recently should put their money where their mouth is and support the telethon!
