Please note: This is not a drum circle, and this is not an open mic. Performers interested in expanding rather than emphasizing the expected protest aesthetic are encouraged to write to us at occupysfseries at gmail. And if you thought you were supposed to be on this schedule but aren’t, please do the same — the Occupy SF Art & Performance Series consists entirely of one recently unemployed culture writer and a teenager from State — we aren’t snubbing you, we’re drowning. Help us out and write again.
We met with the Occupy SF organizers last night, and we have lots of cool stuff in the works! The first of which is the amazing queer literary icon Michelle Tea bringing some of her talented friends Cassie J Snyder, Annie Danger, and Terry VanWeen for a reading tomorrow at 5, at the new Justin Herman Plaza camp. Come down and support art, Occupy, and your own First Amendment rights.
We’re scheduling shows for this week and next week, and we’re going to get amplified. Artists of all stripes are invited to put their boots on the sidewalk and Occupy San Francisco. It’s your right to be out there, and we want to help. Write to occupysfseries at gmail.
