Galvin Fine Arts Center, Allaert Auditorium
Andrea Gibson is not gentle with her truths. Her raw fearlessness makes a rockstar in the poetry world-a four-time Denver Grand Champion who headlines prestigious performance venues with powerful readings on politics, global justice and gender issues.
Her fourth album, Yellowbird, exposes more intimate and reflective truths. However, she buttresses her words with piano, global drums, dobro, violin and accompanies them with Kim Taylor, Chris Pureka, and music inspired by Devotchka. She has been on Free Speech TV, the documentary Slam Planet, NPR, Air America and Independent Radio Stations nationwide. Strong adult content.
Cost: $14 adults, $12 faculty/staff/alumni/senior citizens, $20 non-SAU students, $9 groups, SAU students with current valid student ID are free
