Ladies bring your poetry, your prose, your songs, and your spoken word to share at the open mic. Gentlemen are welcome to cheer us on but this open mic is for us gals only. (Maybe our host will let you on if you come in drag!) 8 minute limit, please. Open mic sign up starts at 7PM.
I will be sharing some work about my multi-ethnic heritage, growing up female in this too often male dominated world, my mother dating at 80, as well as my vampy favorites. (Heck, it will almost be Halloween!)
Your $5 suggestion donations (that means please give what you can) will be most welcome as they help to pay the featured readers. We will be bringing our books, cds, and whatever we have to sell too.
Take V or F train to 2nd Ave. and exit from the 1st Ave exit at E. Houston St. and walk south down Allen St. (aka. 1st Ave) 1 ½ blocks to the store.
This event is graciously and generously hosted by Vittoria Repetto, the hardest working guinea butch dyke poet on the lower east side.
