Start off your evening with local poets Gillian Olivia Blythe Hamel, Peter Burghardt, and Robert Andrew Perez. The three co-publish speCt!, an artbook press that prints small-batch, single-author chapbooks, and each has been widely published in poetry journals. Perez, whose first collection, the field, was published with Omnidawn Publishing, is a recipient of the Lannan Literary Award for poetry.

Then get the dance party started with Oakland's own Ambr33zy BA! making the dance floor a safe space for all creative freaks, oddballs, and disco grannies to be themselves and shake their ass! For this special night, Ambr33zy BA! with friends Ka'ra Kersey and Simmi will come together on one stage to bring high energy world music that will sweat your wig off in the name of LOVE!
