Resistance Mic! Midterms Edition

Resistance Mic! is a series of intimate, curated evenings where a diverse collective of artists will take the stage to perform truth to power in these troubled times. This all-new midterm edition of Resistance Mic! picks up where the elections leave off, adding the human and moral dimensions to the political calculus.  Hear powerful voices, sample some Resistance cocktails, and prepare for an evening of insight, fun, and the power of word and music. Artists include Jennifer JeanRegie Gibson, Tim McCarthy, Sarah Sweeney, plus the amazing talents of writers in the newly published Pangyrus Resistance Issue, including:  Sonya Larson, Fred Marchant, Grace Taulsan and more. Music by Atlas Soul.
