THIS MONDAY the Dirty Gerund is proud to welcome PAULIE LIPMAN from Denver Colorado, this close personal friend of ours is on tour… perpetually, it seems. Which is great for us! Paulie’s dynamic, intense, hella cerebral performances have been winning him friends and earning him crazy troubadour street cred for the past several years. Paulie’s a pillar of the Denver Spoken Word Scene, competing with &/or coaching several Denver Mercury Cafe Slam Teams, including the 2004 Team that earned second place at the National Poetry Slam and the 2006 Championship Team! Paulie’s dedicated to craft, soft drinks, performance and all things subculture!!! He was recently published in the National Poetry Slam collection “High Desert Voices”. He also appears as the voice of Neal Cassady in the upcoming documentary “Neal Cassady: The Denver Years”. Pick up Paulie Lipman’s new album, Inobservant at www.twistandshout.com / check out the video for his piece titled Field of Flames or one of the pieces he performed with the Denver Team at this year’s National Tournament, called Trees.
