TOMORROW…

Join the Pittsburgh General Membership Branch of the Industrial Workers of the World and Pittsburgh IWW General Defense Committee Local 5 as we Commemorate the True Labor Day and come together to remember the achievements of the working class and build bonds to defend and address the current struggles we still face.

We are not only commemorating the fight for the 8 hour work day of the Haymarket Affair of 1886, but the 125th anniversary of the Battle for Homestead and celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the formation of the General Defense Committee of the IWW.

12/14 Bah Humbug! Writers Wrestle the Holiday Spirit @ Hambone’s

Posted in Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 11, 2014 by 6GPress

THIS SUNDAY at 8PM…

If you’ve ever worked retail, food service or a myriad of other jobs around the holidays then you know it can be a pretty dehumanizing experience. We wanted to give voice to that experience, so some fine Pittsburgh writers are going to attempt to wrap their heads around their own holdiay work experience. After the reading, Steve Pellegrino and his wife Mary Shea will sing some Christmas songs, and some other working class anomalies. If you wear a bad holiday sweater the event is free, if you don’t the event is still free, huzzah!

7/23 Berkman Fest & Hemingway’s Summer Poetry Series

Posted in Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 22, 2013 by 6GPress

For months, the Loose Organization of Surreal Ethereal Realists has been plotting the 6th annual Alexander Berkman Labor & Music Festival. Tomorrow at The Big Idea, their understandably motivated but profoundly misguided plan will be put into direct action, including performances by Rob Gray, Kriscinda Lee Everitt & rabble-rousing 6GP poet Jason Baldinger. Berkman may have flubbed Frick’s assassination, but LOSER always hits the mark with a fun event. Click on Kathy Boykowycz’s charming drawing for more info.

Also tomorrow, in fact at the same time as Berkman Fest, the latest installment of the Hemingway’s Summer Poetry Series will transpire at Hemingway’s in Oakland. David Ades, Renée Alberts, Nancy Krygowski & 6GP poet/Low Ghost mastermind Kristofer Collins will be slinging words & taking names (for their mailing list). Go to one, then leave halfway through & go to the other one – who cares, they’re both free!
