Richard Hearn, half of the fantastic poetry/music duo Trenchcoat Manifesto, has suffered a bad finger break and will be unable to perform this Sunday during PoetryElyria at Jim’s Coffeehouse and Diner.  We wish Richard much love, a speedy healing, and we hope to reschedule TM as soon as possible in 2011.

Meanwhile, his fab creative partner and the other half of Trenchcoat Manifesto, poet Tom (Waits for know one) Adams will deliver a rare and striking solo set for your listening and experiential pleasure.  Pudding House Salon Goddess (and poet) Sammy Greenspan (author of the just published Greatest Hits from Pudding House and the Greenspan who made me forget about Alan) will spin her sometimes surreal and always superb poetic magic as well.  And weaving between Tom and Sammy during PoetryElyria as an unprecedented surprise will be infamous (or is that unfamous?) performance artist The Top Less Poet.  The TLP
promises his/her breasts will remain family friendly during this Sunday’s
performance. But he/she’s also been known to lie.

Join PoetryElyria in rare form this Sunday (11/21/2010) from 1 to 3 p.m. at Jim’s Coffeehouse and Diner, 2 Kerstetter Way, in Elyria, Ohio.
