Tonight: Poetry Sucks! With Sing Again Soon at Dino's

Posted By on Wed, Apr 24, 2013 at 5:45 AM


Poetry Sucks! With Sing Again Soon
When: 8 p.m. Wednesday, April 23
Where: Dino's, 411 Gallatin Pike

April is National Poetry Month! Time to brush off your college edition of Leaves of Grass, reacquaint yourself with iambic pentameter, and cozy up with a nice group of rowdy dive-bar patrons who are railing against everything you ever hated about Yeats. Chet Weise’s anti-slam Poetry Sucks! is back after a few months on hiatus, and this installment features emerging poets of all stripes.

Kendra DeColo is the founding poetry editor of Vanderbilt’s Nashville Review, Whit Smith writes about everything from mall hippies to playing ping-pong with Tom Green, and Harry Kagan likes to keep a healthy distance away from phrases like “dream journal.” Hear, hear. Stay late and enjoy the musical stylings of local garage rock threesome Chrome Pony.
