On Monday, 30 April, Sister Spit is coming to downtown Brooklyn, with special performances by Mx. Justin Vivian Bond and Dorothy Allison. For years, Sister Spit, founded by literary superstar Michelle Tea, has captivated us. Sister Spit was established in San Francisco in the early 1990’s as a weekly all-female open mic series, co-founded by Michelle Tea and Sini Anderson. The duo launched the first Sister Spit national tour in 1997: 2 vans chock-full with cutting-edge dyke female writers and performers. Since its inception, Sister Spit has crossed the country many times and re-merged in 2007 as Sister Spit- Next Generation featuring established writers with young, emerging queer and queer-influenced artists of all genders.
For this year's North American Tour, Tea has gathered a number of amazing performance artists, including musician Brontez Purnell (FAG School, Younger Lovers, Gravy Train!!!), performer and playwright Erin Markey (Green Eyes, Puppy Love: A Stripper’s Tail), comic artist and writer Cassie J Sneider (Fine Fine Music), and nationally-ranking slam poet and Mr. Transman 2010 Kit Yan. (Special Providence guests include Olivia Horvath and Thomas McBee.)
