Join us for our first SF Queer Open Mic of 2016!
Whoa, does that sound futuristic, or what? We hope you all had a safe, fun, wonderful winter time stuff, whatever you celebrate or hold dear, and want to say to you HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Join us on Friday the 22nd at everyone’s favorite bookstore to welcome our feature ELLIOTT DELINE!
What to bring:
Your poems, your songs, your short stories! Please actually make some art, bring something you can share with us. Signing up on the list gets you 5 minutes to do one piece and one piece only.
Your love for supporting queer local artists.
Sign ups are at 7:00 sharp, signing up gets you 5 minutes to do one piece, and one piece only. We will stop you if you go over time.
Show is FREE!
We have a long list of rules, if you want them email Baruch at firstname.lastname@example.org not knowing the rules will not excuse you from breaking them. Simple break down:No jerks. No drama. Really, don’t be a jerk, queer or not, no jerks. We do not censor you, but we do not tolerate people showing up to just fuck with our audience.
Our mission is to support local and traveling queer artists and provide some free queer entertainment in this super expensive mutating city, and not like in the good way like the XMen, but in the bad way like Monsanto. Or Donald Trump.
now more on our feature!
