Son of a Pony
Friday, January 7, 2011, 6 pm
Charles Bukowski Tribute
With Featured Performers including
Peter Carlaftes, Angelo Verga, Kat Georges, George Wallace, Thomas Fucaloro, Ron Singer & Ryan Buynak
Host: Kat Georges
For the first Son of a Pony reading of 2011 at Cornelia Street Cafe, we’re once again celebrating the life with a tribute reading to Charles Bukowski. Poet Charles Bukowski was truly one of the few and far between: a champion of the outsider, the lost and lonely, the outcasts from society. Especially during this ongoing period of economic uncertainty and working class adversity, his work resonates like none other, revealing the naked human soul.
At this tribute reading, anyone is welcome to bring their favorite Bukowski poem, or read an original poem that was inspired by Bukowski. We’ll be showing videos of Bukowski, plus giving away his books and other prizes.
Plus a select number of readers including Host Kat Georges, and poets Peter Carlaftes, Angelo Verga, George Wallace, Thomas Fucaloro, Ron Singer and Ryan Buynak will bring Bukowski poems to life in five very unique ways.
Doors open at 5:45. Admission is $7 which includes (naturally) a free drink! Arrive early to sign up on the reading list, or just come and enjoy the fun. Cornelia Street Cafe is at 29 Cornelia Street, in the West Village, between W. 4th Street at Bleecker.
