Monday! Oct 13th! DG welcomes back ERICH HAGAN! Plus IRON POET QUALFIER “GIBBS vs. AEPEX POSITION”
POETRY FEATURE: As a writing performer, ERICH HAGAN has been referred to by the Boston Globe as “tender, yet violent,” and has represented both Boston, MA and Providence, RI at national poetry events. (IWPS 2008 and NPS 2007, respectively) He has performed all over the country under the banner of The Analog/Digital Debate, a gratuitously hyphenated spoken folk-rap and face-synthesizer extravaganza. He is a volunteer community outreach speaker for sexual violence prevention and has toured as technical director for the Harlem Globetrotters. Erich currently cooks, cleans and runs shows at the Whitehaus, a DIY record label, performance venue and communal living space in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston & is Program Director for Books of Hope in Somerville. He has excellent posture.
BONUS RUCKUS: IRON POET QUALIFIER – ROBERT BLACKWELL GIBBS is (if I had time to check or just guess) the longest reigning Iron Poet Champ in History! He’s not current though and wants that ish back! Standing in his way, is one of our newest favorite open mic demolishers AEPEX POSITION! Know what’s funny, Bobby has been working with Aepex on writing and performance, so we thought we’d put an end to that ish with some blood sport competition! 3 rounds, 3 diabolical poetic creations, 3 judges, scoring on 3 criteria! One dastardly secret ingredient from our main man YOSH SHARTIN! Ish got real!
Incredible feature last week from RACHEL McKIBBENS, thanks all for coming out! MATT & the BASTARDS brought the walking sax bombast back at full throttle and we don’t see an end to their house band dominance any time soon! VISUAL ARTIST TBD and don’t sleep on Snack Time! Last week Miss EMILEE (with the collaboration of pal MAYA) brought three incredible concoctions for ya’ll to choose from! Word has it there’ll be some metal music upstairs this Monday, but we’ve been louder than any grinding ax lately! what? I SAID WE’VE BEEN LOUDER THAN ANY GRINDING AX SOLO LATELY! WHAT?!!!!!
