Boog City presents BoogWork for its Third Thursdays series. The new BoogWork series now alternates with the 10th season of the levy lives: celebrating the renegade press series. BoogWork will feature two poets reading, a musical act performing, and then one of the poets will give the gathered a poetry workshop (don't forget to bring a pen and paper).
The next installment is set for tonight, March 21, 6:00 p.m. sharp (Note new, earlier start time for series). $5 suggested.
The evening will feature a reading and workshop from Joe Elliot, a reading from Marcella Durand and music from Bubble at the Sidewalk Café, 94 Ave. A, NYC.
Bubble: Bubble is a shape-shifting conglomerate of New York City's most dedicated mavens of the popular song. Dave Foster is the nucleus of this cell whose purpose is to nourish the soul through music and words. Dave appears as a regular singer for the tribute series, "The Loser's Lounge." Bubble has entertained thousands at New York's most famous institutions with faithful renditions of Beatles' albums, but there is also a vast library of original material dating back to 1995. This evening Bubble will perform new songs for an upcoming recording due before the next meteor is supposed to hit.
Marcella Durand : Marcella Durand's most recent books are Deep Eco Pre, a collaboration with Tina Darragh (LRL e-editions); AREA (Belladonna*); and Traffic & Weather (Futurepoem books), a site-specific book-length poem written during a residency at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council in downtown Manhattan. She was a 2009 fellow in Poetry from the New York Foundation for the Arts, the 2010-2011 Fellow in Poetics and Poetic Practice for the Center for Programs in Contemporary Writing at the University of Pennsylvania, and a 2011-2013 Fellow at The Black Earth Institute. She lives in New York City, where she has recently completed a new collection, The Prospect, and works as a writer and editor for a medical nonprofit.
