You’ve heard us say
it before — but I really believe last night’s Lix and Kix was one of
the best ever. Featured poets Joshua
Gage, Lara Konesky, and Dan Smith (acccompanied by Miles Budimir
on drums, Morgan Ellington on bass and trumpet and Joanne Cornelius on
groovy video/projection work) were fantastic — not to mention the
fabulous open mic. I’ll post pics and videos ASAP on Facebook, on You Tube
and in the Crisis
Chronicles Online Library.
Oh, and I learned today who the other featured poet is who’ll be
appearing with me when I read at the Phoenix
Cafe on June 26th. It’s Joey Pompignano, who (based on what I’ve seen on You Tube — though all such
comparisons, however flattering, rarely do either artist justice)
reminds me of an Italian Zach Ashley. Anyway, it’s always a pleasure to
hear and read with someone new (to me) and good. There’ll be an open
mic, too — so be prepared to spit if you’re so inclined.
26 June2010 at 7 p.m. — Joey Pompignano and John Burroughs
(a.k.a. Jesus Crisis), will be the featured poets during Write On! at
Cafe, 2287 Lee Road in Cleveland Heights. Open mic and
maybe jazz music included.
