The December edition of The News features DavEnd, Cara Rose DeFabio, Elliot Orona, Nathan Rapport, Travis Santell Rowland, Rheal Tea and Deep Teens, as well as hosting guest curator 2012 San Francisco Bay Guardian Goldie award winner VivvyAnne ForeverMORE! (Mica Sigourney), who envisions an evening that rides the line between performance art and nightlife entertainment.
ForeverMORE! is the first of four hosting guest curators enlisted by the evening’s creator Kolmel WithLove to bring fresh performances and curatorial flare to The News in the coming months. Future hosting guest curators include Laura Arrington on January, 8, 2013, Peter Max Lawrence on February 5, 2013, Malcom Hamilton and Gary Gregerson of Fembot and Friends on March 5, 2013, and Bernadette Bohan of The Box Factory on April 2, 2012. WithLove rejoins The News as host alongside Peter Max Lawrence for the one year anniversary of the series on February 5, 2013.
House opens at 7:00pm and space is limited. Admission is $5, and advance tickets may be purchased at thenewsperformance.eventbrite.com. An informal session for artist-led feedback and resource sharing follows the performances.
