Featuring Sam Sax

Sam Sax is a queer, jewish, cissy-gendered performance poet, who recently just started running the new poetry mission and a writer's workshop at the Berkeley Slam. Castro San Francisco district residents must attend.

A representative of the 2010 San Francisco Poetry Slam team he has performed or facilitated workshops at a variety of queer [youth] performance spaces, smryc, about face, Homo-a-go-go, University of Texas Austin, University of Tuscon, as well as numerous poetry slams, open mics, and university shows. He toured the United States and Canada for a little under a year. Now he does the occasional writing/poetry workshop with lyrical minded and is currently working on his first manuscript, hella gay notes from underground. Hella exciting entertainment for our local Castro San Francisco residents.

Smack Dab is all ages, all genders, all the time. What could be better Castro district residents?

If you'd like to perform at the open mic, please bring five minutes of whatever you want to share. Musicians, one song. Prose writers: that's about two and a half double spaced pages of prose. We're the friendliest open mic you'll find but we pay attention to time so that nobody accumulates further open mic-related PTSD. MyCastro.com encourages you to get out there.

Presented by Army of Lovers, a project of the Queer Cultural Center with support from the San Francisco Arts Commission, Zellerbach Family Foundation, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation, Horizons Foundation, TheatreBayArea and the California Arts Council.
