Storme Webber is a Two-Spirit First Nations (Alutiiq/Black/Choctaw) interdisciplinary artist, curator, writer, and performer who creates socially engaged texts and images at the intersections of race, class, gender, sexuality, memory, and spirit," writes Emily Pothast about the artist behind the Frye Art Museum's Casino: A Palimpsest exhibit. "Through the exhibition of archival photographs, installation, and experimental storytelling, Webber uses the pre-Stonewall working-class LGBTQ history of the Pioneer Square neighborhood as a point of departure to shed light on the hidden stories of the marginalized people in Seattle's present and past." On the day before the show closes, Webber will appear at this song and poetry event alongside local musicians Patrick Haggerty—who's known for his role as lead singer and guitarist of Lavender Country, a band that put out the first gay-themed country album ever in 1973—and the Sacred Water Canoe Family (SWCF), a group of members of several tribal nations, known for the songs they sing during protests, rallies, and funerals. This performance is a great opportunity to see Casino: A Palimpsest, and Webber will even stick around afterwards to sign copies of her poetry book, Blues Divine.
