For the fourth year in a row, Band of Poets will be performing at the annual Allen Ginsberg Memorial Open Mic Poetry Marathon. The Marathon happens this year Saturday, June 1, 2013, at Spring Street Center, 1101 15th in Seattle. The marathon starts at 8P. BoP’s scheduled to go on at 11P. According to John Burgess:
Poets take turns
reading poems over improvised jazz, blues, country and percussion. There’s a song or two. Sometimes dance. Expect ballads and hymns, political outrage, Whitman, ghosts of the Beats, edginess and tender Dickinson moments. No promises though – no two shows are alike. We’ve performed at Richard Hugo House in Seattle, the annual Ginsberg Marathon, Rob Schouten Gallery on Whidbey Island, Seattle Bookfest, and the Ballard Public Library in Seattle. Current lineup: John Burgess, Jed Myers, Ted McMahon, Melet Whinston, and Roseanne Olson.
