1 | The Party's Back In Politics!

Elsewhere's 3rd quadrennial Elections Return Spectacular: The 2016 Political Party. Tuesday, November 8, 2016, 8 o’clock (doors at 7pm) 'til all the seals are broken. Hosted by Elsewhere + Triad City Beat + #BlackLivesMatter: GateCity + Greensboro Project Space (GPS).

Put the party back in politics, with returns coverage and insight on the hilarity, horrors, and hysteria of this election season. This entertaining evening includes "51 Pies for 50 States," live punditry from national correspondents, artists, politicians, and magicians.

Greensboro’s radically righteous Irving Allen and John Robert Kernodel III co-anchor our live news-on-news coverage. Special guests include former South Carolina Governor Jim Hodges on "The Chaos of the GOP," artists Sheryl Oring, Jina Valentine, Antoine Williams, and Sherrill Noland, Greensboro Councilman Justin Outling, Black Femme critical correspondent Tee Arielle, and rants every hour on the hour from Red76 activist Sam Gould.

$5 at the door (plus $1 pie slices + $3 drinks). Get ready to eat and drink your feelings- like at any good party! RSVP here!
