Sappho’s Salon: A Provocative Night of Lesbian Diversions

Featuring Fay Jacobs, Ellen Rosner, and DJ SpinNikki
$7-10 sliding fee includes food and wine

This month, our popular salon night for lesbians and their friends includes
humorist Fay Jacobs, author of the lesbian memoir As I Lay Frying, and the sequel, Fried
and True: Tales from Rehoboth Beach; and local favorite Ellen Rosner. With a voice that
Windy City Times music writer David Byrne describes as “a young Chrissie Hynde, Chris
Issak or Melissa Etheridge,” with influences of Ruth Brown and Mavis Staples, Rosner
has opened for artists such as Joan Armatrading, Sophie B. Hawkins and Nelly Furtado.
DJ SpinNikki will play us in and out of sets with her eclectic playlist of pop, soul,
electronica, and world music.
Door proceeds benefit the artists and the Women’s Voices Fund.
