June 25, 2013 @ 11:00 pm – January 1, 1970 @ 1:00 am
Bluestockings Bookstore, Café, & Activist Center
172 Allen Street

Hosted by Vittoria Repetto – the hardest working guinea butch dyke poet on the Lower East Side – the jam has showcased the famous, the infamous, the unknown for over a decade. Come out and deliver (up to) 8 minutes of your poetry, prose, songs and spoken word. Visit vittoriarepetto.wordpress.com for more. LuLu LoLo will perform excerpts from two of her plays: “38 Witnessed her Death, I Witnessed her Love: The Lonely Secret of Mary Ann Zielonko (Kitty Genovese Story)”; forty years after the brutal murder of Kitty Genovese, Mary Ann Zielonko breaks her silence and reminisces about gay life in NYC in the 60’s, her life with Kitty, the murder, the trial, and its aftermath and “OBITS: An Exercise In Limitation” a series of monologues based on obituaries from The New York Times written while an LMCC writer in residence. Tammy Remington, a 2011 Pushcart nominee, has been a featured reader here at Bluestockings twice before as well as being a frequent open mic participant. She will be reading her story “The Last Risk” which was published in Takahe Magazine in New Zealand last year and she’ll be reading her new story “Giving Ground” in June. Both stories tug at our ideas of what’s real and what’s imaginary with unexpected outcomes.
