BUT WE STILL HAVE SOME GREAT SHOWS LINED UP FIRST !!!!!!!
CHECK OUT:
FRIDAY JAN 27TH: OCCUPY FIVEPOINTS 


 
 

PORTUGUESE ARTISTS COLONY PRESENTS:

NOT LOADED
SUNDAY JAN 22 @5PM


EVENT

 

Not loaded

 
She says it isn't loaded as she passes it to you, but it feels heavy, the metal still warm from her hand. You could open the chamber and check, but that would violate some rule of trust between you. You have to believe her, it isn't loaded. The neighbor kid thought the gun wasn't loaded when he took it out to show his friend, just that little thing, and the shot was heard for years after, the story whispered from kid to kid through two generations. Your uncle must have thought the shotgun wasn't loaded when he leaned it against the fence before climbing over, but we'll never know, his mouth is closed forever.

So it isn't loaded. So you trust her, and put your finger on the trigger. Join Portuguese Artists Colony on January 22 to see what happens next.

Featuring guest readers:
Seth Harwood grew up in Cambridge and the Boston area and graduated from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop in 2002. His latest novel, Young Junius, is now available from Tyrus Books. It is billed as "The Wire meets Cambridge, MA in 1987" and was picked by George Pelecanos as one of his best books of 2010. Seth lives in San Francisco where he teaches English and creative writing at Stanford and the City College of San Francisco.

Brittany Perham is the author of The Curiosities (Parlor Press 2012). Her recent work may be found in Southern Poetry Review, TriQuarterly, Lo-Ball, Linebreak, and elsewhere.

She is a member of the word/music project Nonstop Beautiful Ladies and she lives in San Francisco.

Steven Paul Lansky will return with a long-distance reading of his winning piece from December's live writing, inspired by the prompt, "She saw Jesus."

Live music from "Oakland's sweet little secret," Ira Marlowe.

Live writing:
Vote on a prompt as you enter the show, and four writers will write on the winning topic while you watch them sweat, swear, and get inspired. Each writer will read what he/she wrote, and you get to vote on which piece you'd like to see developed into a finished story/poem/rant to be read at the next PAC performance. The live writing gets more exciting with every show. Place your bets!

Live writers TBD
