Love is all you need! Unfortunately, sometimes in the world of romance what you get instead is a razor-blade casserole of betrayal, crossed wires, conflicting needs and their resultant existential loathing — or, if you’re really lucky, whacked-out in-laws and the occasional federal indictment.
My Sucky Valentine is a high-octane flight of moonshines for the doom-minded romantic. It’s the perfect Valentine’s Day date for those of… us whose relationships with our significant others and/or stalkers haven’t brought us that heady sense of bliss promised to us on easy-rock radio. Or if you’re currently steeping in the not-yet-rancid milk of marital joy, My Sucky Valentine will remind you that there’s plenty to be thankful for — and look forward to! Expect tales of crazy exes, self-destructive obsession, zombie love, reacharound-free romance and heartache, heartache, heartache!
Featuring spoken-word performances by Thomas S. Roche, Sherilyn Connelly, Charles Gatewood, Carol Queen, Kirk Read, Julia Serano, Simon Sheppard, and horehound stillpoint.
A sensual sassy silent auction during the event, so bring your bidding attitude!
