THIS ALIEN NATION Announces October Lineup at Joe's Pub
This Alien Nation has announced its October 11th lineup at Joe's Pub. This fall, join host Sofija Stefanovic as she welcomes some of her favorite outsiders for a celebration of immigration!
Each month, at one of New York's finest venues, some fish-out-of-water tell true tales from their lives. Hear anecdotes about language barriers, cultural missteps, rumbles, romance, and more! From addresses to the President, to songs about first kisses, the evening is set to be one of worldly proportions.
Uncensored on our stage, we bring you:
- Jaroslav Kalfar (author of Spaceman of Bohemia)
- Christine Lewis (domestic worker, activist, and poet)
- Michelle Herrera Mulligan (writer and founding editor of Cosmo for Latinas)
- June Thomas (managing producer of Slate podcasts)
- And music from guitarist Thor Jensen
In a multicultural world that harbors some strong anti-immigration feelings, being an outsider can be uncomfortable, hilarious, and weird. But it also makes for some great stories. Come for the stories, leave with some feelings - and enjoy drinks, laughs and cries in between.
IF YOU GO:
