So much amazing last week! Dirty Gerund nears the end of another year! Organizer and co-host ALEX CHARALAMBIDES is celebrating his 40th Birthday this week by writing about himself in the 3rd person, leveraging his party to support the show and generally pulling out as many stops as he can to make it more than a memorable monday night art party! In lieu of presents, please drag a friend to this show to make it all the more epic!
SPECIAL GUEST FEATURE: – BRIAN S. ELLIS (photo by Rich Beaubien) is a writer born in New Hampshire and raised on Cape Cod who became a poet while attending a weekly open mic at the Cantab Lounge. He is the author of three collections of poetry: Uncontrolled Experiments in Freedom, Yesterday Won’t Goodbye (Both on Write Bloody Press), and American Dust Revisited. (on University of Hell Press). He currently lives in Portland, Oregon. Brian is one of Alex’s favorite poets and he called in the “I’ll owe you a huge favor” if you take a moment from your holiday visit back to Massachusetts from Oregon trip to feature at his show. It worked. You gotta respect the hustle!
