In New York for a few days of vacation, I stopped in at Bar 13 to see the Louder Arts collective in action. (Thanks for the suggestion, Mongo!). It was great to meet some of the poets I’ve heard on record, including emily kagan, rachel mckibbens, and lynne procope.
Last night’s show was emceed by geoff trenchard who managed the open mic with humor and wit.
Poets were to read one piece by someone else, then perform one of their own. Many read work by Jason Schneiderman.
The Headliner was Boston’s amazing adam stone.
Then Seattle’s danny sherrard finished the evening.
I’m hoping to see many of them next August when Madison hosts the Slam Nationals.
