Radar Celebrates 10 Years of Superstars 

Wednesday, May 22 2013

For 10 years now, Radar Productions has been providing a venue for queer and queer-friendly artists from all over the country and beyond. Its monthly series in the public library features not only readings but a Q&A session with the authors and fresh baked goods from founder Michelle Tea. Every year the organization also goes on a national tour as Sister Spit; organizes an all-expenses-paid retreat in Mexico open to past Radar performers; and runs a chapbook contest. Just this past year it established a new imprint with City Lights Publishers. The 10-year anniversary reading will feature New York-based performance/video artist Jibz Cameron, whose work as alter ego Dynasty Handbag has been hailed by The New York Times as "the funniest and most pitch perfect performance seen in years"; Thomas McBee, from New England, who is a "masculinity expert" for VICE and the "Self-Made Man" columnist for The Rumpus; performance artist Maryam Rostrami ("Persian Looking" and "Nicole Kidman is Fucking Gorgeous"); and Brian Freeman, playwright/actor/director and co-founder of The Pomo Afro Homos.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
