Bitchez Brew, New Reading Series @ Viracocha SF

The first Bitchez Brew Reading is happening at Viracocha SF, 998 Valencia Street in San Francisco this coming Friday, November 5th.  The lineup (not necessarily in this order) is as follows: Valerie Chavez/Paul Corman-Roberts/Meg Day/Rebekah Edwards/Jonathan I. Hirsch/Kathleen Wood. This follows in the tradition of the literary resurgence which has washed over the San Francisco Bay Area since the 2009 LitQuake Festival, whose interactive and multi-media potential has realized a vast audience not seen by Bay Area authors since the mimeo and small press revolution that enabled the Beat Movement.  We haven’t had our “Howl @ the Gallery 6″ moment just yet, nor do we necessarily need it…we simply want to make good on the promise of then and now, and the Bitchez Brew Reading Series, with it’s nod to Miles Davis Landmark fusion album of mind bending genre means to help promote just that.
