The Beatnik Generation
Having cool, liberal parents isnt always what its cracked up to be. Just look at Gwyneth Paltrows poor baby, Apple, who will undoubtedly grow up traumatized because shes named after a high-fiber fruit and her mommy is the literal queen of shit (see www.goop.com).
But songstress Rain Perry says her own hippie upbringing was mostly a blessing. There was freedom and wonder in being a wild child, but there was also craziness and uncertainty, she says, not to mention alfalfa-sprout sandwiches that couldn't be traded on the schoolyard and roommates named Bear or Superman I had to share the bathroom with.
Perry relives her nomadic upbringing through multimedia slides and songs accompanied by guitarist Danny B. Harvey in the one-woman show Cinderblock Bookshelves: A Guide for Children of Fame-Obsessed Bohemian Nomads.
