Okay, I apologize for putting up this notification so soon before the performance. I realize that this doesn't give you much time to make plans to be there if you want to be there.
Anyway, I do hope that you can make it out for this show. It's happening on Frebruary 7, 2007 at the La Boheme Tango Lounge here in Edmonton. The address to the joint is 6427 - 112 Avenue and it's the show kicks off at 7:00 p.m. Now the reason why you should attend this show is because it is called Intercourse and it's a Valentine's Day themed show, meaning that a lot of the poetry that will be presented is on the subject of love and romance. So if you have a certain special someone in your life and you want to impress them with some culture, romantic culture at that, a full week before the commercial holiday of Valentine's Day, take him/her out to the La Boheme Tango Lounge and it will definitely surprise that special someone. You might even get lucky when you get home.
Now, what's even cooler is the line-up. I know that there are a lot of you out there who cringe when you think of poetry readings because the poetry being performed is either too dumb or too stuffed-collar-ish and it makes for either a night where you are bored to tears or you wish you were without a sense of hearing, maybe both. But the great thing about our show is that every poet we have on the line-up is great. And I'm not just saying that because I'm part of the line-up for that evening. Intercourse is going to be great. We have some of the brightest talent that the Edmonton literary scene has to offer on one bill.
Representing the ladies are Kathy Fisher, Laurie MacFayden, Mandie Lopatka, Nicole Pakan, and Amy Willans. And representing the men are Michael Gravel, Michael Appleby, Jocko Benoit, Patrick Pilarski. I have seen all these poets in action and they are terrific. I hate sounding like a used car salesman, but trust me, it will be awesome.
So, once again here's the info you need....
