Last Stand featuring Red O’Hare!

Red O’Hare was born to a Jew and a Presbyterian in the California Bay Area and raised in the San Fernando Valley. She first started performing at 15 and has continued in spite of everything. Her work focuses on intergenerational trauma, the things we lose, and the people we shouldn’t love. She recently released her first spoken word album, Seaglass Strange, with Lightship Press and Shady Pines Media. You can find it on bandcamp at https://redohare.bandcamp.com. I’m so pumped for the honor of hosting this event! Let’s do this! –Mike G ♥
