I went to a poetry gig the other night. It seems the local small groups are finally banding together to bring more strength and exposure to this art in MN. The first other Poets of the City was quite a success. The first featured poet was a cat from Jersey Talaam Acey. He does have a CD. I missed alot of his stuff because I was too fashionably late. . From what I did hear, it's a must buy! I have a friend who very much a pessimist. He was blown away... Anyway, are there any joints happening in your area? Do you attend readings? And can somebody please hit me off with some "the Last Poets"?! Also, Cornel West has a soon to be released spoken word CD. I've checked out a couple of his joints...interesting.
