Add to Calendar 24-03-2013 24-03-2013 15 Andrea Gibson, Shira E. Andrea Gibson is not gentle with her truths. It is this raw fearlessness that has led her to the forefront of the spoken word movement– the first winner of the Women's World Poetry Slam --Gibson has headlined prestigious performance venues coast to coast with powerful readings on war, class, gender, bullying, white privilege, sexuality, love, and spirituality. Her work has been featured on the BBC, Huffinton Post, Air America, C-SPAN, Free Speech TV and in 2010 was read by a state representative in lieu of morning prayer at the Utah State Legislature. Now, on her fifth full-length album FLOWER BOY, Gibson's poems continue to be a rally cry for action and a welcome mat at the door of the heart's most compassionate room. Featuring the music of Chris Pureka, Nervous But Excited, and many other phenomenal musical guests the tracks on this compilation are active Volcano. They burn away and rebirth- a creation story in every lyric, radiating with the fire of a heart fiercely committed to social justice. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=130108 Highline Ballroom true DD/MM/YYYY
