Event Details

Join us for a very special evening featuring a medley of live music, poetry and interviews with Stu Dias (Soggy Po’ Boys), Rebecca Hennessy (poet), Jake Mehrmann (Tan Vampires), Pale Wallace (Jim Rioux & Guy Capecelatro III), Jim Rioux (poet/songwriter) - and hosts Dylan Metrano & Guy Capecelatro III.

This live show and taping at the Word Barn focuses on local poets and singers who are part of the Burst & Bloom family.

Poets Jim Rioux and Rebecca Hennessy will read from their books and talk with our hosts. There will be music from singers Stu Dias (Soggy Po Boys) and Jake Mehrmann (Tan Vampires), who are both readying solo albums for the label later this year.

Be the first to hear their new material in an intimate setting.

Additionally, Capecelatro and Rioux's collaborative musical project Pale Wallace will perform live for only the second time ever. A rare treat!

This event is one-night-only, and promises to be an unforgettable night of music, words, and community. We hope you can join us.
