Kelly ShortandQueer, Annah Anti-Palindrome, and On a Clear Day at the Denver Zine Library
The Bay Area's Annah Anti-Palindrome gracefully walks the line between musician and performance artist, crafting deeply confessional songs using a loop pedal and often combining them with audience participation activities as well as engaging performance pieces. The fascinating, engaging artist will be joined by what the Zine Library is calling other "queerly antagonistic performances" by local zinester Kelly ShortandQueer and Seattle's On a Clear Day. It's sure to be a moving night you won't want to miss.
