Road to January 20: Impact Party & Fred Thompson’s Rental

Kanye West is expected to perform at the Impact Film Fund’s inaugural ball, with solicitations going out for donors to contribute up to $100,000 to fund the party.

The Impact Film Festival held parties at the Democratic and Republican conventions during the summer.

Denzel Washington and Will Smith are expected at this event, according to the Washington Post.

The New York Times reports on plans to strike just the right tone for this year’s inaugural. Aaron Sorkin tells the Times, “There should be an absolute minimum of stagecraft. The setting itself is pretty theatrical.”

Also, Fred Thompson and his wife Jeri are renting out their Pennsylvania Avenue condo during inaugural week for $30,000. The digs are described as perfect for a news or media org wanting a prime vantage point for the parade and festivities.

A list of the unofficial inaugural balls (there are dozens of them) is here.
