I'll be participating in a benefit poetry reading for Mathieu Paul Allsup on Monday, August 23, at Duff's, 392 North Euclid, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $5.00.
The reading was organized by Get Born and is a collaboration with Bad Shoe, Voices From The Underground, and •Chance Operations• and will feature readings by Tony Renner, Chris Parr, Matthew Freeman, Erin Wiles, Joseph Sulier, Elly Herget, Mathieu Paul, Joe Wetteroth, Bill Foster, Julia Gordon-Bramer, and Philip Gounis,with musical intermissions by Jacob Cohen (solo hip-hop), Mat from Rum Drum Ramblers, and Bob Reuter.
Get Born writes:
As many of you may know, recently our beloved friend and poet Mathieu Paul Allsup took a 4 story plunge from the roof of a building, as such he will be out of work for at least two months so Get Born has come out of retirement for one night only in order to raise some money to keep Mathieus' bills paid while he is unable to work.
