On September 2nd, 2013 Quiet Lightning returns to the San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers for our third annual three show summer series, The Greenhouse Effect. This is our only regular home, and we’re proud to say that of the most beautiful building in the city!
As you might know, this year we’ve been doing a Tour Through Town — teaming up with a different literary series or organization every month and creating a unique show that spotlights both our partners’ defining features and our own — it’s been absolutely incredible, but we’re excited to say that on September 2nd we’re returning to form: a double set literary mixtape, put together by our board of directors, that features all forms of writing without banter or introductions. Find out more about submissions here.
September 2nd, 2013
100 John F. Kennedy Drive (directions)
Doors at 6:45, show at 7:30pm sharp ***
All ages! $5-10 sliding
*** Potluck picnic with games and live music starts at 4:30/5 at The Dahlia Garden Picnic Table, just east of the Conservatory of Flowers (follow that link and scroll down for exact map location). Please bring something to share, but come even if you can’t! We’ll have games like bocce, cornhole, and giant jenga, but feel free to bring your own games, musical instruments, notebooks, cameras, survival kits. Remember that the park will be closed to automobiles, so plan on bussing, biking, or walking in (here’s general directions).
Each year, we have a show on the first Monday of August, another show on the first Monday of September (Labor Day, for which we have a free picnic and live music on the lawn), and (usually) the second Monday of October, which is a featured Litquake show.
You can check out our last shows — watch the videos, enjoy some photos, read the books — below:
