I read (out loud) two Sundays ago on WHFR, which was really exciting. I haven’t read aloud…for years.
It reminded me about how important it is to hear the words you’re speaking, the importance of pronouncing your voice, the completely unstable voice.
I met some really uplifting artists at WHFR. It was like an arts commune that ranged from reading excerpts from novels and poetry manuscripts, playing live music, comedy, improv… It was an apartment full of breath, full of buds ready to flourish in this time of uncertainty, a room filled with togetherness.
I read 8 of my poems, and played a couple songs off my band’s full length (Love, Lust, Sci-fi & Monsters), and our self-titled EP (Telenovela Star).
Here’s the list: BackSpaced, The Season, Mania, Architecture of “You”, Soucouyant and Loupgarou, Vampire from Telenovela Star’s Lust, Love, Sci-fi & Monsters album, Elma, My Imaginary Margin, Brown Girl In the Ring, A Plum from Telenovela Star’s self-titled EP.
