The E t A l. Series revives in fresh quarters ( neighbor to new all ages community art venue space DRKMTTR ! ) to pop some poetry readings in Nashville. OCT 3 / SAT (alongside & adjacent to Ft. Houston/Wedgewood Art Crawl) & featuring three airtight rock solid deft poets -
Hannah Gamble (Chicago) // Adam Day (Louisville) // TJ Jarrett (Nashville)
Each has won a ton of awards, gotten that mad cheddar, had their work in brazen journals throughout the nation, done slick things. More to come, updates, poster, info, gossip, merch. C a l l o u t s i c k or get the evening off or q u i t maybe now, two weeks=positive r e f e r e n c e.
Out over at Really System ( #8), you can find my extra proto linguistic communique sending of ourselves away to "Boatship" among ( Inpatient's Daniel Schwartz ! ), read as boat is.
I watched Master & Commander: The Far Side of The World forty-two times in six weeks.
Thanks to Patrick Williams, ed., for alleviating that burden, going along with the system.
