I’ll be performing a couple of sci-fi journey poems with the Mashed Poetics crew next Saturday on the Drive. Come on by and say hi! Here are the details:
“Mashed Poetics is a night of spoken word and music mash up. Poets are asked to write new work based on a song from the album we choose and we have a live band to play all the songs. Poets perform in between the tunes.
The next show is Saturday Jan 27th at Café Deux Soleils and we feature the late 80s classic Full Moon Fever by Tom Petty.”
Mashed Poetics returns on Saturday July 23rd at Seven Dining Lounge, featuring Death Cab for Cutie’s album Transatlanticism:
Mashed Poetics is a night of spoken word and music mash up where we take a record album and get poets to write new poems inspired by the music.
Plus we have The Transatlantic Yellow Cabs playing all the songs with poets performing in between the music.
And it wil be Jillian Christmas’ birthday. And Sara and Trevor Spilchen’s Anniversary!
This will also be the first night of the Celebration of Light 2016 so if you are looking for a less claustrophobic alternative to your Saturday night come on out and join us.”
