Michelle Tea is the author of four memoirs, including Valenica, whoch won a Lambda, and Rent Girl, which is inspiring a television show at Showtime. Her most recent novel, Rose of No Man's Land, was a finalist for an American Library Association Stonewall award. She is the co-founder of Sister Spit, the creator of Sister Spit: The Next Generation, and curator of the Radar performance series in San Francisco.
Katastrophe is an up-and-coming, genre-busting emo-hop MC whose stunning lyrical skills merge with beats that slide from slick to raw to solid to eccentric, creating a sonic otherworld that snags you in a dance-trance while teasing your head with rhymes that snap, pop and educate. Recently crowned Producer of the Year by Out Music Awards, (for his debute album Let's Fuck, Then Talk About My Problems), Katastrophe's beats rev and surprise, inspired by the grime craze and emo scene as well as both traditional and underground hip hop. Look out for Katas featured in the film Pick Up The Mic, now airing on Logo Mtv Network and in film fests across the world.
Hell yeah! i'm psyched. anyone else gonna be there?
