IRL Poetry Tour kickoff photos.

August 9, 2011 \pm\31 5:06 pm

Internet poets meeting and reading together IRL in Brooklyn on August 6.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The order in which they read (but the photos are random – and I took a lot more but most came out crappy):

Greg SantosJohnny Vulpine, Steve Roggenbuck, Andrew Worthington, Spencer Madsen, Mike Bushnell, Guillaume Morissette, Jess Dutschmann, Michael Michael Motorcycle (?), Ras Mashramani, Poncho Peligroso. Hope I didn’t miss anybody. The place was packed and I was stuck on a sofa for some of it (which is why photos for the most part sucked).

Some of these folks have written about the reading on their blogs. This one by Beach Sloth is pretty complete.

The IRL tour continues through August 12.


Also. The evening made me realize just how old I am. But I’m glad my friend Derek Piotr convinced me to come along.

    I think Michael Michael Motorcycle (?) might be Michael Hessl-Mial

      I don’t think so, because supposedly his first reading with Steve & Poncho was in Baltimore last night.

      I’m very glad I got off the couch before your reading! LOL. Otherwise I think all I would have gotten would have been butts.
