Love Talk and Slow Jams, Pt. 5, was this Saturday - a night of a capella, courtesy of The Inspiration, and spoken word poetry, courtesy of The Excelano Project. I spat Cheshire Cat, wore a dress, and according to the DP, disrupted the vibe. +10 points por moi. "Despite the sensuous atmosphere, there were some quirky performances from students such as College junior Hannah Van Sciver, who recited a poem describing love as “the dirtiest four letter word I know.”" Read all about it!
In other news, The Pigeon (a fabulous venue for Poetry Slams in Philly) just posted the latest episode of their street slam series. It features EP member Richard Thomson + muhself, facing off against EP alumna Lauren Yates. It's fun. Check it (below). ALSO, that same Lauren Yates just published a chapbook. Which is fabulous. Yall should stop by her tumblr and buy it. Seriously. Go buy it.
Some other tid-bits....There's a staged reading of 8 The Play this Friday, at the Platt performing arts house in Philly. I'll be playing Maggie Gallagher. And I'm on the wait-list for the Philly Live Arts Jumpstart 2013 program. *fingers crossed.* (..I've been writing plays lately? The piece I submitted is a 10-minute something I'm developing with a friend. But more on that later...)
