I totally stole these graphics from the Zygote in My Coffee website to help promote Zygote’s two-day event in Cleveland this weekend.  Because of my web robbery ineptitude, I can’t get the band graphics to copy.  So I’ll just mention that the kick ass musical acts expected to perform there include The Interlopers, Hobo/Monk, Rubella, and Derica.  Zygote’s featured poets include powerhouses from Cleveland, Toledo, and across the nation – many of whom I’ve applauded in past blog entries.  For more information, check out www.zygoteinmycoffee.com or befriend the event on MySpace at www.myspace.com/taintedclevelandreading.  Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show will start at 9 p.m. both nights (November 7 and 8, 2008).  Your hosts will be C. Allen Rearick (who will also be one of our Lix and Kix featured poets in January) and Brian Fugett of Tainted Coffee Press.  It promises to be one of the most exciting poetic events of 2008, so please check it out on one or both nights – unless you’re afraid of being Tainted.  But let me assure you, ‘Taint nothing to fear.  Drink up!
