The Eternal Telethon's latest pitch: 'Infinity + 24'

The group plans another fund-raiser for a retirement home for artists — this time 24 hours of creatively inclined productions streaming on its website. Jerry Lewis it's not.

"We're interested in making money to support the project, but it's hand-in-hand with creating an open space that could, for performers in our community, present their ideas to a global audience," he said. "Our primary goal isn't making a lot of money really quickly."

Adrian Tenney appreciates the possibility for anonymity that goes along with the Eternal Telethon's take on the format. Tenney, a 25-year-old musician and visual artist based in L.A., will be performing in costume as part of her first and perhaps only gig with the newly formed rock group Yeti Spaghetti and the Hallowieners. (She's going to be a Yeti, and the drummer's going to be spaghetti.)

"Because it's being broadcast on the Internet, it gives you a kind of space," she said. "You feel way more free to just go crazy, like I'm able to take on this alternate personality that I don't usually have the freedom to do."
