Emery Diercks is a spoken word artist whose prose strikes a revenant tone with her readers and audiences. She is currently working on her second book and lives in Salina, KS with her husband and two children.

Kansas City songwriter Teri Quinn writes songs that harmonize sweet with savory, entwine lace with barbed-wire, and romance old-fashioned charm with modern grit. Quinn’s clawhammer banjo hums and hollers, and her lyrics are both celestial and cerebral. Her enchanting voice and lyricism is a timeless elevation of the feminine and fearless.

Poet Jen Harris is a professional public speaker, spoken word poet, activist, published author, founder and former host of Kansas City Poetry Slam. She is a TEDx fellow, a Button Poetry & Write About Now Poetry feature. Her work is poetic memoir, a confessional assortment of personal and adopted stories of life on and off the grid; substance use, abuse survival, coming out stories, the New Age shift in mindfulness, the cross-country migration of artists in search of paying work both plentiful and fulfilling, the demise of the corporate culture, the defiance of media-induced prepackaged lives and conversely, and the beauty created when people unite on a common front for a common purpose.

Survivors’ Stories: Stand Against Sexual Violence, MOCSA Benefit

AT The Rino

FEBRUARY 28, 2019, with support from Fine Dining Productions and Johnson County Mental Health Center, The Rino will be hosting a very special event called Survivors’ Stories: Stand Against Sexual Violence. All proceeds will go to MOCSA, The Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault.

The evening will consist of a curated lineup of performers sharing songs, poetry, and other performance art pieces that touch on their experience with sexual violence or harassment. Along with providing a safe space where survivors can connect and access services they may need, this is a chance for those who have not dealt with sexual violence to further understand what it means to be a survivor.

TICKETS ARE $15 SUGGESTED DONATION | Those who are able to give more are welcome, no one will be turned away due to lack of funds.

Valentine’s Ball: Love & Other Ghost Stories
7:00 PM19:00

Valentine’s Ball: Love & Other Ghost Stories

From the quill of host / founder / artist Peregrine Hoenig:

 "I have been throwing a Valentines Ball in Kansas City, MO for 20 years. It started at the Fahrenheit as an art show and costumed event with live music and naturally became part of the regional Mardi Gras schedule. Every ball has a love theme - Hunting for Love, For The Love of Money, Love Ambassador - it’s been thrown in amazing places - from the original Golden Ox to early days of The Ship to an antique rug store, Smith and Burstert. Birdies opened on Valentines in 2003 so it celebrates the shop’s inception as well.”

 This year Love and Other Ghost Stories is grey costume attire.  

Poet Jen Harris & Julia Haile (hale with an i) will be performing.

Thursday, February 14, 7-10pm.

1746 Washington KCMO- the new location of YJ’s Snack Bar.

Admission is free but please bring cash for a variety of provided ways to relax as an adult and celebrate these talented women and the spectrum of love.

Very chill and self-date friendly.
