Here's 16 year old me rocking a McMurder t-shirt while working the door at a rave/punk rock gig in 1996 to remind you that tonight is #teenangstnight @foxcabaret Show at 8 pm, tickets available at the door. I've organized a fantastic group of people to share their embarrassing old diaries, notebooks, screenplays, poems, song lyrics, and more for your entertainment on this emo, rainy day. #Vancouver #eastvan #comedy #storytelling #mcmurder #emo #rave #90sfashion #naturalcurls #hennadyedhair #embarrassingmyself #noshame
This Saturday, November 19 is the last Teen Angst Night of 2016.
As a Canadian I’ve been shocked and appalled by the results of the American election so I’ve decided that 20% of all ticket sales will go to the American Civil Liberties Union who work to protect civil liberties in America. My teenage self, who protested her heart out in Calgary at events like Take Back The Night in the 90s (see photo above), would want me to take action.
We need to laugh. We need to love one another.We need to listen to each other. We need to speak up.
I’ll also be sharing some of my high school dramatic political action poetry and… some of my awful journals from Christmas 95 because it’s getting to be that time of year.
