The Last Tuesday Society Presents Amy Hale & Tamra Lucid in Conversation
If you follow my astrology you’ve seen Tamra Lucid’s beautiful photography. Monday Aug 14 at noon Pacific brilliant esoteric scholar, editor and researcher Amy Hale will talk with Tamra about her multifaceted projects.
Tamra has produced documentary films including Viva Cuba Libre: Rap is War, The Gits about the murdered singer Mia Zapata, Edward James Olmost Presents Exile Nation: The Plastic People about the suffering of deportees in Tijuana’s Zona Norte, and the Emmy nominated and Hollywood Critic’s Association Award winner End of the Line: The Women of Standing Rock. She was also a digital archivist for 99%: The Occupy Wall Street Film that premiered at Sundance.
Tamra was the feature interviewer for Newtopia Magazine and the original Reality Sandwich, two Burner associated websites. She interviewed two presidential candidates, several whistle blowers, the director of Food Inc., the Beehive Design Collective and dozens of other known and unknown people making a difference in the world. Her interviews are archived at Interviews with Extraordinary People on Medium.
Tamra earned her asterisk in punk history as the first to start a riot grrrl group online. Her band Lucid Nation was one of the original rg bands, opened for Bikini Kill and for Black Panther rappers, for Sleater-Kinney and The Breeders. Lucid Nation’s 2002 record Tacoma Ballet hit #1 on college radio.
In 2021 Inner Traditions published Tamra’s memoir Making the Ordinary Extraordinary: My Seven Years in Occult LA with Manly Palmer Hall, a Rain Taxi selection in 2022. With me she is co-author of The Magic of the Orphic Hymns which will be released by Inner Traditions August 22.
Dr. Amy Hale is an Atlanta based writer, curator, and critic, ethnographer and folklorist, speaking and writing about esoteric history, art, culture, women and Cornwall. She has written widely on the life and work of Ithell Colquhoun and is the author of Ithell Colquhoun: Genius of the Fern Loved Gully (2020). She is also the editor of Essays on Women in Western Esotericism: Beyond Seeresses and Sea Priestesses (2022) and is currently preparing an edition of Colquhoun’s magical essays. She has contributed essays for Tate, Burlington Contemporary, Correspondences Journal, Camden Arts Centre, Art UK, Arusha Galleries, Heavenly Records and Spike Island, Bristol. She is currently a curator and host for the internationally loved Viktor Wynd’s Last Tuesday Society lecture series.
Amy and Tamra will be talking about how Tamra’s various projects have led to a fascinating journey through little known undergrounds, and an experiment in serendipity.
