Posted in Uncategorized on December 31, 2011 by dirtygerund

May all the something be forgot (including the lyrics to that song).

2012!!! I don’t want to hear about your doomsday scenarios. Every Monday, we live life like there’ll be no tomorrow anyways! This year will be NO different. Awesome Poets, Awesome Music, Awesome Art and Ruckus! Let’s all go to the lobby and get ourselves a clue!

FEATURED POET: NANA – Exciting new poetic voice rising young-gunning his way onto Worcester’s Poetic Radar. A recent college graduate, this cat’s been capturing attention and applause at the popular 3rd Thursday Poetry Cove Monthly Series run by Elite Promotions right here in Worcester (poetry club show at the Train Station)! From really fun erotic poems, to deep delves into father’s advice stories, growing up and/or becoming, Nana’s words are sharp, sophisticated and seeking. He takes the audience with him. Crazy stage presence and swagger for days. With his trusty phone (he doesn’t read poems without it), he wields electronic stanza truth tectonically, the voice of a leader, a student and a teacher! Don’t miss out on this energetic juggernaut!

MUSICAL GUEST: LITTLE WAR TWINS – Renegade Folk Mystic Tribe from Boston, “have come forth through the storm to awaken the thunder and lightning in you, bearing these words: You are strength. You are electric. You are whole.” Together Little War Twins stands as a tribe, with each member threading together a tapestry of sounds that is as unique as the instrument they sheath. Featuring guitar, drums, bass and string and lapsteal, these musicians have been making the rounds and gaining notoriety & fans in Boston. This Monday, you get to see what this buzz sounds like. For more, check ‘e, out here!

BONUS RUCKUS: “Magnetic Poetry A Go-Go” Challenge! – Ok, don’t know that the A-Go-Go’s about…. yet. (Sounded cool when I typed it). Your Curator NICHOLAS EARL DAVIS has some magnetic poetry strips and is willing to flip them in your direction. Each participant will get 20 or so magnetized words and something metal as canvas. Combining luck and skill, the deepest, most stirring phrasing to come from a word random word cluster wins. You will have the whole second half of the show to slap together eternity! Either your own Magnetic Poetry Set of a drink on us for the winner!

PLEASE!!! PLEASE!!! have a safe New Years Celebration and PLEASE!!! PLEASE!!! save some for us Monday Night! You have a full day to recover from your amateur hi-jinx New Years Eve. Come rock with Duct Tape Band, Snack Time, Open Mic, Damian’s 90’s song of the week and all the rest! Yosh and Chicken resolve to hook you up with the best in burger and drinks. We resolve to not quit until the last drop of fun’s been squeezed out of any seemingly benign Monday Night!


Where’s my New Year’s Kiss….



We shall leave you with some words from our feature at his last feature!


Monday Dec 26th! DG ends the year strong! w/ TAWNY POWELL! Musical Guest MEGHAN McNEALY! Plus the “Santa’s Naughty List” Game Show Challenge!

Posted in Uncategorized on December 22, 2011 by dirtygerund

Hi-da-lee-ho Neighbors! Taking a quick break from feeling bad about not having enough money to buy Christmas Presents to tell you all about the awesome good time post-x-mas poetry dance party happening this Monday at the Gerund. We do not stop! This will be, like, our 152nd Monday Night show in a ROWWWWWW!!! The Holiday Calendar never gives us a break, so why should you. You shouldn’t. You should come down and sweat some of those holiday calories way off!

POETRY FEATURE: TAWNY POWELL – Young Worcester Born & Raised Poet makes good! Tawny Powell is an avid hugger. She laughs in the face of uncertainty and leaves poems under-bellied, not belying a city’s footsteps, she brings forth both raw earth and shadows in her poems. Born and raised in Worcester, MA and a graduate of Assumption College, she resides now in Atlanta, embracing the cultures performance heavy ways while staying true her paged roots. Though new to the stage, she embraces it wholeheartedly with the fearlessness of a child and calm of an ocean. That is to say, she might wave at you. Cast stones. Or tidal-wave-drown you. Poetically, that is. She’s got a debut chapbook on deck entitled Long Winters Baby, which could be said to be long overdue but, “I’ve always been a late bloomer.” Her approach to her art is “staying tuned, to myself, always.” And if she can throw a bit of society, global politics, environmentalism, weather, religion, or a something about the steak she ate last night and how beef production contributes to the erosion of the ozone layer and global warming…. She just F’s with it that way. As a growing poet/performer her goal is to connect self to society in ways beyond her own individual experiences, though not ignoring those experiences, deeming them rather “life’s time stamps.” Moving forward into 2012 she aims to speak about broader socio-political, economic, geographic, transcultural issues, while situating the self as an individual poet, recognizing and empathizing with the plights of others, and toward a final attempt to link multitudes with common threads of experience, intellect and emotion. As a passionate performer who’s just now ‘getting her feet wet’ she warns, “look out for some sneak attack political poems in 2012.” Though yet to surface they are not far underneath the soil… And she tils. Til infinity.

MUSICAL GUEST: MEGHAN McNEALY: After spending 4 months in a tent, some people might go home and visit their family for the holidays, right? Or maybe some people would emerge from their wilderness seclusion to sing us pretty tunes on a little Spanish Guitar. Meghan McNealy is a Massachusetts resident, and editor for Corrupt Press, which puts out scores of poets work! She has poetry of her own (and a new book coming out) but she will be singing us quirky and vibrant songs as our musical feature! Here’s some video!

BONUS RUCKUS: “Santa’s Naughty List Gameshow” Challenge – Got royally screwed gift wise this holiday season? We’re not hating, but it may very well have been your fault. In an effort to educate, we’ll have haiku’s, featuring some of the naughtiest acts in the past year, spoken through the famous persona voices of those who did the sinning. Be the first to buzz in, name the foul player, and get a point. First to three gets a chance at redemption with a special gift prize. Sinners win too! 

Holy North Star! What a great show we had last week! Let’s keep the momentum going into 2012! Duct tape band got their hands on some LARRY WILSON back from his hobo travels! YOSH & CKICKEN are making their lists, checking them twi….. well that’s a bit too much work, they checked ‘em, that’s what counts. Rumor has it that we’ll have an uber special holiday visual artist! Who’s snacking us? Special surprise guests are slated to share this post holidaze biz with us! NICHOLAS EARL DAVIS has chestnuts, who’s got the fire?  Seriously, have a safe and happy holiday season, make sure you save some room to come feast with us! We are always workin! You better not cry!



Monday! Dec 19th! “Alex can’t wait for his birthday party,” party! w/ MASS LEAP COLLECTIVE. Musical Guest PEET! Plus the “St. Nick’s Bag o’ Tricks!” Improv Challenge!

Posted in Uncategorized on December 15, 2011 by dirtygerund

Back at the bloggy helm! This is Alex Charalambides. Getting older is the new young, didn’t ya know? I’ll be getting closer to doing just that this Monday at the Dirty Gerund! Every year, it seems, my birthday falls 2 days before Christmas (does this happen to anyone else?) and I get lost amidst a swirl of friends traveling, double gifts (nah son!) and last minute holiday shopping with funds I’d just secured from Auntie Hallmark Cards! Let’s anticipate a great time this Monday, let’s not wait to celebrate ME and my humble-ass humility! Let’s also think about the next generation of gerunders and get behind a special fund raising opportunity with our special guests:

MASS L.E.A.P. COLLECTIVE – For the past year, I’ve been attending way too many meetings and working my non-existent fanny off, helping get a state-wide collective initiative going. It’s called Mass LEAP (Literary Education & Performance) it involves dozens of poets, educators and activists who want to increase opportunities for young people to discover spoken word and for teachers to get performance poetry into the class room. A handful of very talented individuals will be performing, showcase showdown style, to help raise funds and that all important awareness for our activities, the biggest one being, the announcement of the very first evah! LOUDER THAN A BOMB / MASSACHUSETTS Youth Poetry Festival, slated to splash down this Spring in Cambridge! For years, I’ve been bringing teams of talented local teens to National Tournaments. It takes a lot of work, time and energy. As I wax a year more mature and (I hope) wiser, I’m working at increasing these festival type opportunities for more of our youth here in the Bay State! We’re making connections all over, partnering up with great organizations like MASS POETRY & looking to follow the amazing lead, modeled after the successful LOUDER THAN A BOMB Festival in Chicago, check out the trailer for their documentary! Some of my newest poetry organizer friends and artists will be helping me celebrate my birthday early, by hitting the Gerund Mic, telling you all more about our plans and selling Mass LEAP samplers. Every dollar we raise will help us get this popping!

MUSICAL GUEST: PEET – local chip-tune heros hitting our stage for the first time to bring their indie-sonic-manic-dance-synth tunes our for us to move our you know what’s properly! This is a birthday bash after all! Friends with such heralded local luminaries as JON VON WONDERFUL, THE GRAND ARKANUM & ACTIVE KNOWLEDGE, these cats are gonna crank the amps all the way up and past FUN!!! (ya, there’s a knob for that). To find out more and groove out to their latest EP release, “Clearly I Have Some Holes,” just wander on over to their Bandcamp Page and listen away:

BONUS RUCKUS: The “Saint Nick’s Bag O’ Tricks” Improv Haiku Challenge! Last minute, “I don’t really know you but feel obligated to bring a gift to your thing” blues got you down? We hear ya. We don’t know if this helps, but we can always have fun trying. Your curator & favorite intrepid word wrangling brain stormin’ poet NICHOLAS EARL DAVIS is bringing a bag of tricks with him (editor’s note: “bag” may be a box, “tricks” may be a bunch of crap Nick’s got lying around the house!) become spellbound as he creatively calls them “gift ideas,” whereas most normal people would call them “a bunch of weird crap.” Whoever wants in will get a “gift” at halftime and have time to write a haiku justifying it’s presence as a present. Best re-gift yule-tide platitude nets you your choice of gifts and a drink on us, the gift that keeps on giving, at least until you pass out!

DUCT TAPE BAND is one beard down, but may get one back! YOSH & CHICKEN‘s plans to sell Ralph’s Diner “Gift Certificates on cocktail napkins were thwarted by management. KEV H is your visual artist! Anybody got some Chanukah Cookie Snack-Time, talk to Emilee! DAMIEN has promised a return of “90’s song of the week!.” Alex does not require gifts, only your bright shiny faces listening and applauding all the good stuff going on this holiday season. The weather outside is not that frightful, get your Dunks Gift Card Shopping done Monday Morning, order an extra Turbo Shot and meet us at Ralph’s for a holiday party you won’t be ashamed of in the office Tuesday morning! Ice Cold! (Pictured left – me checking out my suspended animation chamber, set to rock when I turn 40… so future generations can enjoy the ruckus!)

Monday Dec 12th! Universal Poetry Smile Guy Champion MIKE MCGEE brings the Joy Joy gobsmack! Musical Guest DREAMZOO Plus! Shakespeare Autotune Challenge!

Posted in Uncategorized on December 8, 2011 by dirtygerund

This is Paulie Lipman, substituting for Alex Charalambides (read as: Alex has chained me to a desk in his house and stated “Write this junk while I am off doing Worcester Hometown Hero-ish type things! Do it well and there might be cigarettes and Pepsi in it for you!”) What a guy.

POETRY FEATURE: Other than being the Mayor of Awesometown, “Mighty” Mike McGee is an international spoken word artist, writer, performer, speaker, slam poet and comic. He has performed in thousands of venues all over North America, and was one of the first Americans ever to perform poetry at the University la Sorbonne in Paris, France.

McGee began performing comedy and poetry to audiences at home in San Jose, California in 1998. As a Poetry Slam competitor in the U.S., Mike has competed at the National Poetry Slam on team San José several times. In 2003, McGee won the coveted National Poetry Slam Individual Grand Championship, besting over 300 nationally ranked poetry slammers. He has since toured over 300,000 miles throughout the United States and Canada where fellow National Poetry Slam Indy Champ, Shane Koyczan and beat-boxer poet extraordinaire C.R. Avery (of Vancouver, B.C.) joined him to form the group Tons of Fun University in 2004. They have since headlined music festivals across Canada, bringing their unique blend of poetry-laden “talk rock” to massive audiences all over the great north.

In 2006, McGee became the first person to win two separate individual titles by being crowned the 2006 Individual World Poetry Slam Champion, besting over 70 of the world’s best ranked slam poets. His “stand-up poetry” has been written about in Writer’s Digest magazine, and been featured on NPR, HBO and CBC. Mike McGee books internationally and is on tour damn-near 300 days a year.

Mike McGee was born with Spina Bifida in Fort Campbell, Kentucky and Tennessee, but grew up in and around San José, California. He writes and performs all over the world. He discovered a love of words at the age of three, but didn’t write poetry until the age of twenty-three. In 2003, he won the National Poetry Slam Individual Grand Championship in Chicago, and then in 2006 he won the Individual World Poetry Slam Championship in Charlotte, N.C., becoming the first person to attain both titles.

Mike has a mighty appetite, an uncanny relationship with ladybugs, several tattoos and siblings, and a passable Scottish accent. He breathes somewhere between Silicon Valley, California and Vancouver, B.C. as often as possible. Mike thoroughly enjoys weather, beverages, and the scent of mock orange blossoms in the spring.

I’ve known Mike for 10 years and have never ceased to be amazed by his endearing, honest, and wonderful wordplay. Yes, wonderful. As in “full of wonder”, as Mike has never lost his sense of childhood and yet still explores the complicated morays of the adult world.

Please join us in welcoming this former Worcester resident back to the Woo in style!

MUSICAL GUEST: This week, the DG brings you the experimental sound stylings of Dreamzoo. This ain’t your normal musical type guest either. Oh no. This is that extra special two part goodness! Dreamzoo will consist of:
Blending lo-fi noise with minimalism, Paul Pinto (of thingNY) gives the Worcester premiere of For Stefanos Tsigrimanis, a haunting and meditative elegy scored for two Califone turntables, guitar, voice and electronics.

AND Cellist and vocalist Valerie Kuehne presenting a follow up to her recent release, Dream Zoo (featured in Avant-Avant and Lucid Culture, and praised as “more avant-garde than avant-garde”), entitled Food, Drugs, and Commerce. The satire and innuendo underscoring collective experience is revealed through blistering, operatic vocals.

BONUS RUCKUS: AUTOTUNE SHAKESPEARE CHALLENGE! Simple! Bring your favorite Shakespeare sonnet. Perform it. We’ll do the rest. Your curator NICHOLAS EARL DAVIS has made arrangements to have a production engineer AUTO-TUNE your words, so even you will have trouble recognizing the Frampton-esque stylings emanating from your gullet! Keep a straight face the best, audience votes. Winner gets a drink on us and a life-time worth of pop music stardom memories!

Last week’s open mic was the business! Let’s see if we can make this week’s the corporation! (Bad, I know…running low on caffeine…) VISUAL ARTIST & SNACKS TBD

And we shall leave you with a video from our amazingtastic poetry feature


Monday Dec 5th! Portland Maine’s WIL GIBSON brings the winter word gut punch! Musical Guest BETWEEN TALL SAINTS & SINNERS Plus! AutoTune Challenge Take #2!

Posted in Uncategorized on November 30, 2011 by dirtygerund

We don’t stop, won’t stop, can’t stop, quit telling us to stop, (if this were a telegram we’d end with another stop!) Dirty Gerund’s hitting our Winterized Warm Stride, delivering the tastiest shows this side of gong! This Monday’s no different, yet it totally is!

POETRY FEATURE: 2011 Portland Maine Slam Team Member WIL GIBSON was born the bastard son of a good idea and a bottle of bourbon and raised in some of the poorest communities northern Illinois and eastern Arkansas have to offer…He now lives in Portland, Maine, (he likes it a lot there, you probably would too) and writes too many love poems sometimes. He is a proud (mistake prone) father, but he tries real hard. He has shared stages with Regie Gibson, my brightest diamond, Kurtis Blow, Jason Carney, Brother Ali and Patricia Smith.  He is a three time Portland, Maine and one time Manchester, New Hampshire grand slam champion. He loves people and dogs a lot, and would like to pet your dog, give you a hug and talk to you for a few minutes… Wil’s got an amazing raw energy that got rewarded when his Port Veritas Slam Team made semi-finals at the National Poetry Slam. He’s been touring nationally, getting his incredible words and pretense-less persona out there! This is his first time visiting the Gerund, so let’s get crazee! “Wil Gibson is what makes performance poetry fun. Whether running his local venue, cultivating young poets of his community or in one of his many features across the United States, his connection to those involved is unforgettable.” -Jason Carny, National Slam Champion.

MUSICAL GUEST: Sorry for the scheduling snafu. We get our signals crossed in internet land. Apologies to Boston Emcee HW (we will have you back soon!) This week, Dirty Gerund welcomes the trance like, fluid synth, vox indie rocks sounds of BETWEEN TALL SAINTS & SINNERS which features musician / producers BRAD DeMATTEO & AKARI UCHIYAMA. We don’t have a whole lot of info on these cats for the hype machine that is this blog, but never fear, you can head on over to their Bandcamp and check out their four track EP, titled “and when I looked back, they were gone.” just move them little mousey click fingers over to:

BONUS RUCKUS: AUTO-TUNE WORD WARBLER CHALLENGE! Simple! Bring a poem. Perform it. We’ll do the rest. Your curator NICHOLAS EARL DAVIS has made arrangements to have a production engineer AUTO-TUNE your words, so even you will have trouble recognizing the Frampton-esque stylings emanating from your gullet! Keep a straight face the best, audience votes. Winner gets a drink on us and a life-time worth of pop music stardom memories!

DUCT TAPE BAND likes SCOTCH….TAPE (who knew?). Lot of great new voices on the open mic last week! Keep coming down! VISUAL ARTS & SNACKS TBD (maybe a little less ghost chili powder?, meh! we’re not gonna mess with Emilee’s artistic integrity! YOSH & CHICKEN have their holiday shopping done!

Meanwhile, catch him fight for JEFF CANNON’s slam services Thursday Night at the Little a poetry Reading (97 Webster Street) 8pm w/ Mr. Cannon doing a full set of poems to boot! End transmission.

Monday! Nov 28th – GIVE EXTRA HOLIDAY THANX for 2012 Miss Dirty Gerund MEGAN THOMA!!! Musical Guest TOM Inhaler WEYMAN! Plus Iron Poet Qualifier!

Posted in Uncategorized on November 24, 2011 by dirtygerund

This Monday, get over the thanksgiving bloat and family arguments by swinging down to the Dirty Gerund to pay homage to your 2012 MISS DIRTY GERUND PAGEANT WINNER MEGAN THOMA! I’m not going with the prescribed biography on this feature. We did that before when we invited Megan to feature wayyyy back in the fall of 2009 (times were so much simpler then)! Originally hailing from the Mid-West, Megan came onto the Providence Poetry Slam Scene two years ago and started running game LIKE A BOSS! With an absurd off-beat demento writing style, Megan’s been blowing up whales, explaining alternative dinosaur sex and (ahem) getting along with moon rocks, on stages, in the pages of Write Bloody Anthologies (check out their latest Zombie Anthology, Aim for the Head) on Providence Poetry Slam Teams, and as organizer of the Encyclopedia Show Providence! Megan zings them right down the middle with precision guided moments of “What the F did she just say?!” Megan double fisted insane duties at this year’s National Poetry Slam in Boston, serving as volunteer organizer for the festival as well as performing on and coaching their finals stage team! Her star’s on the rise, yet she never forgets her small time friends at the Gerund. If there’s a sash involved, she’s on it like spit drenched microphones! She takes chances with her work, expresses opinions that aren’t always popular, teaches kids and does it all with an indomitable swagger, a fierce, quirkified word woman who’s gonna represent the Dirty Gerund properly! Even if she hails from the 4-0-1. All hail the new Miss Dirty Gerund!

MUSICAL GUEST: TOM “Inhaler” WEYMAN – super great friend of the Dirty Gerund and Worcester scenes. Having worked with the likes of CORRINA BAIN & SAGE FRANCIS, this musician, producer is playing his first solo show in 2 years! He’s the founder of Supply & Demand Music, home to super bands DARK DARK DARK, BROWN BIRD, and many others. While performing most of his magic behind the mixing board, Tom rocks out live on occasion, confessing that his musical performances exist primarily to entertain SHANE HALL, hell, that’s more than good enough for us! Tom’s paying us a special visit, in part to also lay claim to being Mr. Miss Dirty Gerund (awww…. him and Megan are sweethearts… 1,2,3 awwwwww……) This should be a blast, whether you’re a sentimental mofo or not!

BONUS RUCKUS: IRON POET QUALIFIER, “Lipman vs ?????” It’s time once again to find out who wants a piece of current champion BOBBY GIBBS crown! Former Denver Poetry Slam Titan and recent Worcester Transplant PAULIE LIPMAN wouldn’t mind spit-shining that trophy outta Bobby’s crying hands. The question is, who else wants a shot? We haven’t confirmed a second competitor yet, so hit us up on facebook, or call your curator NICHOLAS EARL DAVIS (if you’re lucky enough to have his digits). 3 rounds, 2 competitors, 3 judges, 3 categories, one diabolical secret ingredient concoction proffered by the man we ALL give thanks for, Chairman YOSH SHARTIN! Quit acting like you ain’t impressed… haters….

DIRTY GERUND DUCT TAPE BAND is thankful for the invention of beer! YOSH & CHICKEN are thankful that hockey season isn’t on lock down, tip them between Bruin Goals! VISUAL ARTIST & SNACK TIME contributor up in the air (let’s ground that soon)! Get at AARON or EMILEE (on the ruckus staff page) if you’re interested! I’m off to a family function, missing my Monday Family! NICHOLAS EARL DAVIS is smashing windows in anticipation of another HOT NIGHT! Don’t make him smash his hopes & dreams of rocking out with you this Monday!

We’ll leave you with some awesome words, then we’ll really leave you!

Monday Nov 21st! National Slam Champion LUCIFURY!! from Denver! Musical Guest LEON LEGACY! Bonus Ruckus “Cannon’s to the Left of Me, to the Right! No Left!”

Posted in Uncategorized on November 17, 2011 by dirtygerund

Not only does Nick miss you, but I do too.

This Monday!

POETRY FEATURE: 2011 National Poetry Slam Champion LUCIFURY is a native of planet Earth, and has spent most of his life there. The rest of his time was spent on the Park Hill continent of planet Denver. He conquered his first empire at the age of 18, but traded it for something more valuable; a rhyme book. After being mistaken for the lord of darkness in his adolescence, he began training as a pupil of the Egyptian god, Osiris. Around this time, he lost his belief in gravity. He only walks so people don’t freak out. Lucifury is the son of a half-Jamaican wizard who stopped Vietcong bullets with lightning bolts. His mother is a yellow rose who appeared as a woman in his father’s dreams. His grand father made his living by skinning live tigers, and was among the first Negroes to teach steel to fly. Lucifury comes from a family of shamans who study the esoteric magic spells written on the wings of butterflies. He speaks fluent river. Lucifury also possesses x-rated vision, and knows what womens’ dreams look like in the nude. Lucifury is the proud owner of a pet universe. He has defeated an entire school of ninjas without armor, using nothing but African souls trapped between his toes. He also has an allergy to bullshit, and credits this disability for his not being capable of wackness. After a crash with the Silver Surfer, he had an operation where his blood was swapped for pure liquid charisma. Since this event, he has fathered 20 immortal children made of various shades of light. Lucifury is currently in a relationship with the color black, and loves her for who she is. He is now working on lyrics powerful enough to cure all known and future diseases. This man is on his first national tour, an accomplished poet, musician, artist and actor, you can check out all sorts of stuff at

MUSICAL GUEST: LEON LEGACY – The artist formerly known as Kid Ikarus from local up and coming, dynamic Worcester Area Hip Hop Grinders THE GRAND ARKANUM, Kid recently became LEON and is working on some solo material to augment his burgeoning bands’ rocket ride to success! Anyone who’s seen TGA of LEON perform live on Wednesdays at the Raven know this cat’s got skills and the raw energy and charisma to get to the top of whatever mountain he’s choosin to climb! We’d book the whole TGA crew, but LEON’s the only one with ID and we take that serious at the Gerund! Come hip to this hop-star! To check out some music online for free, dig…

BONUS RUCKUS: “The battle for JEFF CANNON begins!” Challenge! Resident bad boy and Iron Poet Champion BOBBY GIBBS is setting up The First Ever City Wide Poetry Team Slam “special event” December 16th and has invited all poetry venues in Worcester to compete for venue glory. You know resident tribe elder and mystic JEFF CANNON is gonna be involved. The only question is who will he represent? Our good friend at the Little a Thursday Night Poetry Series is courting him! Of course he’s honored and normally we’d offer Jeff our blessings for any kind of engagement he chooses to engage in, but your Curator NICHOLAS EARL DAVIS is feeling mighty small & petty these days…. as always I’m amused and support him. Nick has told COWBOY MATT HOPEWELL that if he wants Cannon on his team, he’s gonna have to come into our venue and take him. We love our Cannon! Nicholas has offered Cowboy some form of poetic competition. Winner takes the first step towards securing Cannon’s illustrious services. We’re not sure exactly what this all means yet, but if it involves Cannon, you know its gonna get epic!

DIRTY GERUND DUCT TAPE BAND took as week off to attend to some birthday biz. They should be back this Monday! Many thanks to DAMIAN McEVOY for lending his bass skills to accompany GREG McKILLOP last Monday! Regular (aka AMAZING) Snack Time will return with Miss EMILEE! Visual Artist TBA. YOSH & CHICKEN will be there to protect AND serve the best burgers and drinks in town! They are our law! Respect their authoritAI or expect to get SERVED! NOBODY took me up on my free drink offer last week! Bad blog readers! Just plain too bad! Greg’s off on tour again. He misses you. We miss you! Where the hecks have you been? People are starting to talk? Is it something Nick did? We can fix it.

We’ll leave you with some intense words from our feature!
