We’re very excited to be playing Pink Thunder songs at this event. A number of fine, fine poets will be reading, including but not limited to MY BROTHER MATTHEW, who excels in both poetry and racquet sports. Ok, maybe he doesn’t excel in racquet sports, but he’s pretty good. He does excel at poems.
Details from the UPB website:
February 15th / 6 – 8 pm
Music and poetry have long been interwoven forms, but rarely has their connection been as evident as in Michael Zapruder’s new album/book Pink Thunder (Black Ocean), wherein each of the 22 tracks is a free-verse poem, adapted from works by various poets.
In celebration of this work, University Press Books is proud to host Michael for a performance of his new album. The event will also feature Kazim Ali, Indira Allegra, Travis Nichols, Christopher Sindt, Laura Walker, and Matthew Zapruder, all of whom will be reading poems which they consider, in some way, to be songs.
We hope you will be able to join us for this unique and exciting event!
