So, some time ago, we met a young lad named Nick. We fell in love with him. He kept coming to the Queer Open Mic and he kept making us laugh, and lifted ours spirits. He then helped us, when we needed him the most. Then he helped us again, when we really really needed him. He just kept getting better and better, and then we fell more in love with him, (it’s hard not to, he is a great guy, and A GREAT PERFORMER!) But then, he broke our hearts. He left to go explore Hawaii, and farm. And we were sad, sooooooo sad. BUT HE’S BACK FOR THE HOLIDAYS!! So we really could not let him be there without giving him his first feature at The San Francisco Queer Open Mic!!
So join us, Friday December 19th! For The Last San Francisco Queer Open Mic of 2014! We cannot wait to see a full feature performance by the lovely Nick V. Chin and hope to see you all there!
Remember the sing up list goes up at 7pm, the show starts at 7:30pm. There is a poetry show right before our show, so we might start a tiny bit late, we want to be nice and share the space, but the list will def be up by 7pm, and you all know if tills up fast.
BRING: Your open hearts, your bravery, your vulnerability, friendship, listening, and have fun with us. Oh yeah, and your poems, your songs, your jokes, your short stories (we will cut you off if you go over time.) and or interpretive dance. Bring snacks, (poets, performers and bookstore workers like snacks HOLIDAY COOKIES!!), but nothing too messy please, we gotta help keep that bookstore clean.
Remember the show is FREE! With a suggested donation.
