POETRY + MUSIC! Sarah Elena Palmer, Jason Hoopes + guests

Present Minds.jpg

San Francisco musicians Sarah Elena Palmer and Jason Hoopes invite you to a reading of their original poetry and other creative writing on Saturday, August 5th, at Adobe Books in SF. Joining Sarah and Jason will be fellow bay area writers Nora Toomey, Alicia Franco, and Brett Carson

This evening marks a public reading debut for Sarah and Jason (reading as SEP and Rachtious Palmer respectively) as poets. SEP uses fantastical language to play out her most prized inner controversies; irreverent and hallowing, she swings through her moods, seeking neutrality in her observations. Her rhythmic song-like delivery balances the more severe and confrontational style of Rachtious Palmer, who is concerned with stern angle, strict conservative imagery, quietly sharpened thought knives and a lean predatory hunt for relentless truth. Together with Toomey, Franco, and Carson, this evening of poetic spoken word performance promises electricity and blood, green garden sun to burn bright in, and deep cool words soothing to ears too long left in the dry noise of our turbulent time.
