Utero-A-GoGo No. 1
a benefit for Aliza Shapiro
at a private residence in the South End
I recently found out that I have to have major surgery, as you might imagine, it has thrown me for a loop. As a self-employed community event producer (Truth Serum Productions) and full time performance artist I will not have any income during my surgery and recovery afterwards. I am unprepared for the financial strain that 4-6+ weeks of downtime will create. The immediate need for this surgery is a surprise and like many artists I don't have a financial buffer, so I'm taking the difficult step of asking my friends and communities to come together and help me get though this surgery and recovery process.
I am so grateful to my friends who are hosting a private benefit cocktail party for me called Utero-A-GoGo No. 1. The party will be held Friday February 5, 2010 in a SOWA loft, recently featured in The New York Times.
There will be celebrity bartenders ( Josey Packard from Drink and just featured on Rachel Maddow and ladies from from Lupec mixing custom cocktails with appropriately inappropriate names! There will be delicious food! And live entertainment (Kelsey Jarboe and Adrienne Marie Naylor aka Dykonoclast)!
On February 10th I'll turn 41. So it's kind of a birthday party too. Let the decline begin!
