Monday! April 16th! Hey look, it’s DAVE MAC! Musical Guest The Scatter Gang from Boston! PLUS! Iron Poet Prelim “King vs. Mosca!”

Late post this week! But there’s still great show coming at you this Monday!

POETRY FEATURE- DAVE MacPHERSON – Long time veteran of the Poets Asylum Sunday Night Reading Series, Dave made a name for himself, being that poet who’d read first, week in, week out, for years! His hilarious over the top performance style landed him on Worcester Poetry Slam Teams back in 2000 and 2003. Dave’s a master story teller, having run a story open mic for years at 1 Ekman Street, while being involved with both the WCPA and the Ballard Journal. Proud puppa, special needs teacher, Dave has shifted more energy to publication in recent years, with credits on, Worcester Review,  countless online publications and most recently a spot in the Write Bloody Books Zombie Anthology, Aim for the Head! I respect Dave’s writing talent a great deal, he’s got zingers for days, but a real ability to switch tones and journey into those quirky areas, other writers don’t always want to go to! he’s got a week off from his busy school schedule this week, so we thought it the perfect time to see what a DG feature might look like on him!

MUSICAL GUEST – THE SCATTER GANG – Indie Rock From Boston, in their words! It’s the dark longing that lies beneath The Afghan Whigs’ 1965 meets the call to arms of Thrice’s Vheissu; the almost terrifying vulnerability of Brand New’s Deja Entendu meets the cry for redemption in Hot Water Music’s Caution. It is the honest and heartfelt faith of Springsteen’s Born to Run. These are the sounds and words that hold us together when we’re all scattered, and we are The Scatter Gang. We’re part of a generation trying to remember who we are and to reclaim what we had. It’s not too late to find what we lost and to start believing in something real again, and we think it’s high time we all realized that. Check out music, tour dates, more at

BONUS RUCKUS: IRON POET PRELIMINARY “King vs. Mosca” Who will be standing at the end, to step into the ring against newly crowned champion Jenn Mahon? We’ve got two great competitors who’ll try their aprons on this Monday! Krista Mosca is a New Hampshire Poetry Slam Star, most recently making it to the finals stage of the WOWPS Tournament! Aslan King is a Low-Z Records Artist and writes a lot of dirty haiku! Let’s see where this goes. 3 rounds, 3 poems, 3 judges, 3 criteria. One secret ingredient from our Chairman Yosh Shartin! Battle ? BEGIN!
