Molotov Mouths flyer-page-001

Monday, November 26th – 7:00-9:00 pm
Molotov Mouth poetry

Josiah Luis Aldrete, a founding member of the Molotov Mouths Outspoken Word Troupe, joins forces with fellow poet Tongo Eisen-Martin, to call the troupe to assembly at Bird & Beckett for an evening of incendiary expression!

The Molotov Mouths — 3 women and 4 men from diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds: Chilean-born Ananda Esteva, queer activist Dani Montgomery, performance poet Raw Knowledge, housing rights organizer James Tracy (editor of The Civil Disobedience Handbook), African-American essayist and disabled rights activist Leroy Moore, the late & sorely missed Chicano poet George Tirado and Spanglish storyteller Josiah Luis Aldrete — made their presence well known in Mission District and other venues early this decade, and published an anthology of their work in 2013.

Free event; donations to the poets encouraged, accepted and appreciated!
