Quiet Lightning is a literary mixtape that will not stand on ceremony. We give you some of the greatest writers from the Bay and Beyond; no introductions necessary, just the writers and the things they write.
But this month? Well, come right this way! You there—step right up and tour the town. We got art on the walls and wandering minstrels, food and Downtown Wine on the pour. Special guests at each station: Studio One, 826, and SOMArts in the house; a video projector, exquisite corpse, oracular storytelling, a lightning trivia station with prizes, our beloved Lagunitas, and a prompt-generated chain letter that could get you into our February 4th show at 826 Valencia free!
For only $5 you can have it all: Wednesday night, January 16th @ the Sports Basement on Bryant Street. Tell ‘em you’re there for Quiet Lightning and it’s all yours. No strings or surprises. OK, surprises. But no money? No problem! (More money? We’ll take it!) Draft beer $3. Wine for donations. Food? Compliments of the Basement.
In the gallery: work by previous sparkle + blink artists.
The party starts at 6pm. Come socialize, play some games, win a prize. And of course! The latest Quiet Lightning, put together by Charles Kruger and guest curator Sandra Wassilie, to follow, featuring readings by: J. E. Freeman, Matt Leibel, Shideh Etaat, William Taylor Jr., Ariel Fintushel, Sarah Natalie Webster, Sarah Kobrinsky, and Dawn Gross, at 7:30.
This month’s featured artist is Daniel Healey!
