I'm Reading with boni & Clem

It's this Thursday, 7PM, KGB Bar in NYC. Kathleen Warnock was nice to invite me to guest host and read, while she is tied up with her play, "Rock the Line," which is another great cultural activity I intend to partake in.

Here's more on the reading:

Drunken! Careening! Writers!
Thursday, February 16
KGB Bar, 85 E. 4th St.

With your Special Guest Hostess, Anne Elliott

Anne Elliott is a poet/ukulelist and publisher of Big Fat Press chapbooks. Her fiction appeared most recently in Pindeldyboz (web edition), and she blogs on writing, reading, handicrafts, and feral cat management at assbackwords.blogspot.com. She currently seeks a home for a first novel, THE GLORY HOLE, and a short story collection, LIGHT STREAMING FROM A HORSE'S ASS. Her excuse: she is a preacher's daughter.

boni joi has performed at numerous venues such as The Knitting Factory, Estrogenius, Dixon Place, Gecko's Night of the Living Divas & Chicks Cook, Jennifer Blowdryer's Smutfest, The Carmen Mofongo Show, and The Atomic Reading Series. She has performed in Mortified, a show where readers perform work from their teenage diaries. boni joi was part of Da Bips: Da Bowery Improv Poets, an improvisational poetry troupe directed by Galinsky. boni has read at Amanda Stern's Happy Ending Reading where the readers are asked to warm up the crowd by performing 80's cover songs, which she did, with her musical husband. Her poems have appeared in Arabella, Long Shot, Driver's Side Air Bag, Big Hammer, Mind Gorilla, Torch, The Brooklyn Rail and many others. She is author of The Jaw-harp Aphorisms and hasself-published the Matchbook poems, a series of succinct poems printed on matchbooks.

Clem Paulsen was trained as an architect and practiced architecture for over a decade. His notes from those years have grown into a sprawling comic novel, Drawing a Blank. He lives in Hastings-on-Hudson where, with medication and exercise, he has managed to keep his workaholism under control.

And Kathleen's Play:

"Rock the Line," will run at Emerging Artists Theatre, 311 W. 43rd St., 5th floor through Feb 26. It's the story of seven hardcore fans who follow a rock star, and what they do while waiting for the doors to open on the day of the show. (It's inspired by Kathleen's own not-so-lost years following the Queen of Rock, Joan Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeettt).
