I’m reading at KGB Bar tonight! I’m super excited. I’ve been to a few readings here before, and it’s got a killer atmosphere. Not only that, but check out the impressive lineup:
At 6:30pm Professor Cornelius Eady reads and perform with his Rough Magic band’s guitarist Charlie Rauh and Concetta Abbate on the violin
And poets reading with or without acoustic musicians:
Carl Hancock Rux
Brian Omni Dillon
R! on verse acoustic guitar & harmonicas
Und singing in German und mit monologue:
Leigh Martha Klinger
I’m listed as a poet, and I do in fact write poetry, but I was planning on reading an excerpt from Burning Furiously Beautiful: The True Story of Jack Kerouac’s “On the Road.” Specifically, I plan on reading about Kerouac’s Greek connection, his Lowell friend Sebastian Sampas.
The event starts at 6 and is free and open to the general public.
KGB Bar is on 85 East 4th Street (near 2nd Avenue)
New York, New York 10003
