This semiformal sit-down dinner party is an opportunity for unique and real local folk to dress up and conform to what modern American considers NORMAL, as conveyed through popular culture and media.

During the course of the event, local performance artists will unravel the facade of ‘normalcy’ while examining the insidious forces that lie behind modern society. Performers are invited to visualize these forces in their own unique way.

Performances are curated by Peter Kalisch.

Attendees are asked to dress up in ‘white-bread’ or ‘business casual’ clothing and corresponding personalities; an individual’s costume does not need to correspond to their own gender expression, male or female drag is encouraged. Think, a corporate networking function in a city like Chicago or Dallas where everyone is predominantly interested in their unremarkable business achievements, bland relationships, disappointing children, etc; everyone is in a constant struggle to conform to the ‘American ideal’ while vigorously concealing those aspects of their lives that do not.

As opposed to taking Halloween as an opportunity to dress up as fictitious monsters, impersonate instead the very real monsters that occupy the halls of power in this country!

As Tribal Cafe says, “Our open mics are ‘mixed’ – open to comics, musicians, bands, spoken words, rap/hiphop, multimedia and other creative forms of self expressions.” The Echo Park cafe is a cheerful neighborhood hangout that keeps the mic open seven days a week. There’s always a $6 minimum when you’re planning to get on the stage; but the menu boasts healthy food options at low prices, like salads, sandwiches and burgers. Or hit the Tribal Greens Bar, for veggie-infused freshly squeezed juices and yummy smoothies await. To get your 15 minutes of fame (or perhaps a bit less time), Tribal Cafe advises “to participate, just come in and sign up and the host will schedule your performance for the day/night. No phone or online sign up. It’s super easy. Just come in, sign up and perform!” (“Open Mic Nights in L.A.” – USA Today)

In the Manifesting Visions presentation, Daniel will share his experience on working with cannabis as a psychedelic (TransCannabis) and how we can use transformational journeys with cannabis and breathwork to treat trauma and PTSD on a large scale for societal healing. Daniel will discuss how this practice supports new paradigm research on Extended-State DMT (DMTx), why DMTx research is important to psychedelic society, and how extended experiences in the DMT-scape could lead to a new revolution in psychedelic sciences. He will share ideas on what skill sets and mindsets might be required for the research team and the psychonaut explorers to conduct safe Extended-State DMT research. Daniel will then discuss concrete steps to making these expedition journeys a reality.
