I hung in for the late start and was not disappointed. Spoken word, poetry, did take notes
- and well it is not the same without seeing the performance of Steve B. rapping/rhyming stream of consciousness. It was personal and meaningless. How many causes can you put together to become mundane. Performers to watch out for are Louise Whalen who has just gone public, but has been writing her own material since she was 13.
The other was a lively burlesque-ish performance by Tuesday.
The evening started of by the musical duo known as Dirt Laundry. It was surreal, took me back to Austin TX and Jack Kurouac times, only then they didn’t include live music, or live performances in coffee houses. One of the intriguing aspects of this is the Cash prize. $7 put in by the performers, then best performance of the evening be it five or twenty one performer takes the pot. A little like x amount of dollars will hang your picture here. There has to be a better way to compensate the talent. Pass the hat!
