Hey folks! I’ve got some poetry performances coming up this week and next, so I thought I’d jot down the 4-1-1 here (linked up and all that) to make it easier for you to mark your iCals and take in some culture of the poetic form.
Here’s the slate (so far!):
Wednesday, 5/24: The Three of Cups Lounge, NYC; 6PM
I’m one of four featured readers for the Rimes of the Ancient Mariner Open Mic. Only $5 Cover. Enjoy fifteen minutes of classic and post-modern Trigonis!
Thursday, 5/25: Porta, JC; 8PM
Art House Productions’ original gangsta open mic is back in the basement of Porta in Jersey City. I’m not a featured performer, but I’ll be reading about three to five minutes worth of verse. $5 cover.
Sunday, 5/28: Theater for the New City, NYC; 4 – 7PM
I’ll be participating in this year’s LES Festival, reading between three and five minutes of poetry, so if you’re in the area, swing on by! (I don’t think there’s a cover for this one.)
Friday, 6/02: The Beacon, JC; 9 – 11PM
I’m very proud to be participating in Art House Productions’ JC Fridays event G.O.A.T. (Greatest of All Time) Variety Show, featuring some of the best talents from the various Art House open mics across Jersey City. No cover! (That I know of, anyway.)
Choose wisely which one(s) to attend, my faithful friends, and I’ll look forward to seeing some of your familiar faces on these dates!
