First Show!

January 13, 2010 at 5:26 pm (Uncategorized)

And we’re under way.

Last night we had our first show, here in sunny Santa Barbara. We were in a grassy plaza bordered by City Hall and the headquarters of a rightwing newspaper. That was weird. But it helped reinforced the shows major points of reclaiming space from the control of the hierarchy. As in, yes, City Hall is right here, and so is a group of Earth First!ers and anarchists, talking about how we can end City Halls forever!

The show went well, especially for a first go. We were with Margaret Killjoy–Magpie–who we’ll be with again tonight in Santa Cruz. Magpie went first, with a talk and power-point presentation on the intertwined histories of fiction and anarchism. His talk was pretty hilarious and also really informative, and strongly resonated with the mood of the night.

Up next a Santa Barbara local gave a talk on environmental issues here, particularly the green neoliberalism of mainstream environmental sell outs like Environmental Defense Center. The show continued from there with more discussion of issues from around the state, and a kickass community-building workshop.

All in all, it was a pretty damn good first show. Now it’s off to Santa Cruz. See you there!
