Fri. April 3rd, Coffeehouse: Got the blues?
Friday, April 3, 2009 at 8pm come to PeaceSmiths’ Topical, A-Typical Folk Music, Poetry and Whatever Coffeehouse.
Got the blues? Come organize. It makes you feel better. We have a table full of info on local music, politics, petitions and community concerns. Come bring some literature and promote your favorite cause (or band!)
This month, featuring:
Poet Amy King: Poet Laureate of the Blogosphere
Phil Minissale: The Blues Boy of Long Island
Open Time – Maybe you!
Our PeaceSmiths coffeehouses are held at:

A poetry reading in Amityville? That church is a few blocks from where I went to high school. In fact, they once let my band use their rehearsal space (I think the bass player was a Methodist).
You will come, Gary? Or maybe to the one in Manhattan on Sunday? Your friend, Consuelo, may as well! I hope to see you one day soon, poetry reading or no!
I’d love to come, but I’ll be in Massachusetts this weekend. I miss bumping into you on campus. Hope to see you soon — I think I’ll be on campus in a few weeks — I’ll let you know when.
