As though Michelle Tea and co. aren't busy enough running the stellar, longstanding monthly Radar Reading Series, premiering Valencia's The Movie at film festivals far and wide, and publishing books on their City Lights imprint, the group debuts a new series called the Wandering Moon this Friday night at the one and only Tenderloin National Forest (a dead-end alley-cum-vibrant community space transformed by Luggage Store co-Artistic Directors Darryl Smith and Laurie Lazer). Quarterly, the series will be held beneath various full moons, beginning with a Hunter's Moon. Tea describes it as “an exploration of urban mysticism, contemporary witchiness, unabashed moon worship, and feelings” – you know, magic as usual. With performances by Brontez Purnell, Carrie Leilam Love, Novella Carpenter, Kat Marie Yoas, and Myriam Gurba, and vegan food by Beth Pickens of the S.F. Food Adventure Club fame.
The Wandering Moon starts at 8 p.m on Friday, October 18, at Tenderloin National Forest (Cohen Place, just west of Leavenworth at Ellis), S.F. Free; 255-5971 or Facebook.com/events/171069636416971.
