The Erotic Literary Salon will be held Tuesday, February 17. For the fourth consecutive year, the Salon welcomes back local artist and performer, Monica Day, to deliver a Valentine’s-inspired reading. We never know exactly where Day’s Valentine’s explorations will take us. Her poems and stories are deeply personal, often unfolding right up to the moment of the performance itself. Will this be the year she finds love? The year she doesn’t care about love? Wherever she lands, Salon regulars have come to count on her unflinching style, uncensored approach to the erotic life — and the unexpected ways that she speaks to both the heart and pulse of each person in the room. http://powerofoneprogram.com
The Femme-mynistiques are a unique force bringing together the skills of Alexa Gold, Lady Omni MC & Plum Dragoness. Together the Femme-mynistiques are a righteous storm creating a innovative niche on the performance scene with their awe-inspiring original fusion of Lyrical Poetry, Omnipotent Raps & Siren Vocals set to dynamic variety of conscious hip hop, tribal house, down-tempo, electronic music (& sometimes presented a cappella). Performances blend their respective skillfulness in music production, dance choreography, theater arts, poetry as performance and song writing into an illuminating blend of ancient rites that celebrate the modern spirit of freedom, unity and love. https://www.facebook.com/groups/thefemmemynistiques/
