Thursday, April 19th,
7:30pm- sign up / 8pm- start
Subrosa's take on Open Mic. Once a month. Every month.
Sign ups at 7:30pm. Show at 8! Each act will get 5-10 minutes depending on the evening.
This is a space for performance of all kinds. A space to be witnessed in your work. Performance art. Drag. Dance. Poetry. Music. Essays. Rants. Interactive games. Magic. This is an Open Stage.
With a critique of capitalism and acknowledgement of intersectional systems of oppression, we honor and wish to uplift less heard voices including those of queer, trans, femme, people of color and indigenous folks. We strive to create a brave space where we work with what and who is in the room.
We hope for this space to serve the radical performing artists in Santa Cruz and are open to collaboration!
Donations accepted and appreciated.

Counter-Production: Noise as Critical Research in Sound Studies (APRIL 20-21, 2018) - Some of the topics include indigenous black metal bands, black beatnik poets, prison abolition, noise policing in Seattle and Tunisia,... https://noise.sites.ucsc.edu/unintelligible/
AND>... there is a rad sound installation in the Arboretum that we'll visit on Saturday morning, as well as a concert (not free) Friday night that should be fully the weirdest show you've ever seen - https://www.indexical.org/events/2018-04-20-happy-valley-band-blectum-from-blechdom-zachary-james-watkins
And have people heard about organizing challenging UCSC's growth?
-CLUE, the Coalition for Limiting University Expansion (which successfully fought to restrict UCSC growth 10 years ago along with other groups and folks efforts) is holding a community meeting at the Santa Cruz Police Station Community Room (uh, unfortunate choice of location as I imagine not everyone would feel safe there), 155 Center Street, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 19. A couple links regarding them are here:
-About the settlement: from Coalition to Limit University Expansion 
-UCSC Expansion Meets Santa Cruz Housing Crunch 
-The new group opposed to development on the meadow, which advocates development elsewhere (such as behind the trailer park) on campus, is called East Meadow Action Committee (EMAC) "a group of ... faculty, students, alumni, staff, and concerned community members who have joined together in an effort to prevent development on one of the campus's most important scenic landmarks, the East Meadow, north and east of the
intersection of Hagar and Coolidge Drive on the UCSC campus." https://www.eastmeadowaction.org/
