8/30 Labor Saturday @ EEBX + Performance Art Festival @ Roboto

Posted in Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 29, 2014 by 6GPress

TOMORROW at 7PM…

Labor Day has come a long way from its roots in the aftermath of the Haymarket Riots, The Homestead Steel Strike, The Pullman Strike among many others. Today it’s more about a day off, a picnic, the dread of going back to school or the crime of ended summer but not necessarily about words. Join us Saturday August 30 for four awesome readers who still know that work is meaningless without words and celebrate what it means to work in both prose and poetry.

Lineup is Jason Baldinger, Stephanie Brea, Adam Matcho, & Dave Newman.

 

ALSO TOMORROW, Christine Stoddard will be doing something (no idea what) at this…
