Moonlighting: A Queer Open Mic and Reading Series Featuring Corrina Bain on Thursday, January 2, 2014


Due to the inclement weather this evening, Fazenda Coffee Roasters is closed. However, as Corrina had already begun the journey to Boston when the news came in, we will still be offering a show from this remarkable poet.

The venue has changed to a private space in the JP/Dorchester area. Please see the Facebook event (click here) for precise location details and bus/subway directions.

If you are planning to head out tonight, please use caution and good sense! We strongly recommend that you avail yourself of public transportation; Boston has declared a snow emergency, which restricts parking in some areas. Stay safe and enjoy the night!

This reading is part of our monthly LGBTQ series, Moonlighting. Click here for more information about this recurring show.

The featured reader for January 2 is Corrina Bain.
