Andrea Gibson, Chastity Brown

When: Thu., Jan. 18, 8 p.m. 2018

Prior to writing her profoundly political 2018 spoken-word album Hey Galaxy, poet and activist Andrea Gibson was working on a project solely about love. But the 2016 U.S. presidential election compelled the queer wordsmith to focus on timely topics. Among others, these included the Pulse nightclub massacre (“Orlando”), harassment of women (“To the Men Catcalling My Girlfriend While I’m Walking Beside Her”) and the Black Lives Matter movement (“Letter to White Queers”). The Boulder-based poet delivers verses with intense fervor while her folksy backing band underscores her words. Gibson performs on Thursday, January 18, at the Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington. Americana singer-songwriter Chastity Brown opens.

Price: $20/23
