Cali Bulmash has performed queer-radical-roustabout-magic music and spoken word all over the country, including in the NYC Fringe Festival.
Perhaps their best-loved performance was after they were arrested for planting native seeds in a tar sands mine, and Cali and others were sitting about handcuffed in some police department's trailer, where pamphlets warned about the danger of the Black Lives Matter movement and humorless,intimidating cops stood over them, and Cali took a deep breath and belted out:
"I AM A Consensual/ Pansexual/ I'll sex you up
ONLY IF YOU WANT ME TO!"
Armed with a ukulele, foot tambourine, moose puppet, and a whole slew of words, Cali jiggles loose the joints of capitalist heteropatriarchy and out pops joy and a moment to practice liberation.
