Submitted by the Event Organizer
The Cat’s Pajamas monthly cabaret presents an American Pop Parable: a night of storytelling, blessings, words, and music.
We’ll be celebrating all the different cultures that have influenced America.
Includes a showing of the 1981 animated film American Pop. About four generations of a Russian Jewish immigrant family of musicians whose careers parallel the history of American popular music. The majority of the film’s animation was completed through rotoscoping and mixed media including water colors, computer graphics, live action shots, and archival footage.
- MamaCoAtl Chantiko — From seductress to revolutionary to Earth Mother San Francisco-based singer MamaCoAtl is a performer unafraid to sing and speak about our turbulent times. Her sharp lyrics are social commentary laced with poems and prayers.
- Alan Kaufman — Kaufman is the editor of many anthologies, including The Outlaw Bible of American Literature, which was reviewed on the cover of the New York Times Book Review and The New Generation:Fiction For Our Time From America’s Writing Programs.
- DeCoy Gallerina — She is an amazing performance artist, activist and story teller. She recently did an art installation as part of the city hall ceremony for ending violence against women.
- Jelal Huyler — He started poeticizing some time ago and realized that it was the only thing he should really ever do… forever. So, he does.
- Cameron Ochs Band — This melodically-driven, little blonde began blending the classic feel of early American music (Folk, early Country/Western, Soul) with the sweet shine of Pop.
- Julie Indelicato — She’s a poet, a songwriter, a singer with Fox & Woman, is a member of the SF underground, the 16th street Mission mighty madness.
