Join us on July 7th for an extravagant multi-media closing party, as Molly Alloy joins forces with visionary musician Sweetie Lynne Piper and the crew of the nations longest running queer literary journal, Gertrude Press, to bring you a dynamic evening of musical, literary, and fine art. You’ll enjoy raucous live music, literary readings, public participation, a live auctioneer, a keg of beer, and so much more!

Riding currents of transformation she sings songs of the heart trying to heal. Lynne speaks with a voice uniquely her own, pulling threads that remind us of shared human experience. http://sweetielynnepiper.bandcamp.com
