Day of the Dead Beats 2009



Monday November 2nd
@ The Way Out Club(2525 South Jefferson)
7:00 P.M.
Free

We have an enormous line-up this year. There are 16 of us presenting the message of the Beats. It will be a challenge to get everybody up to fit into three hours, but we will do it. I've arranged to start the show at 7 p.m. We'll need to keep each reading under ten minutes. I am excited about this year, because we have a solid core of powerful performers that have graced the stage in the past: K. Curtis Lyle, Michael Castro, Ann Haubrich, Bob Putnam, Phil Gounis, Chris King, Ken Brown. Stefene Russell returns to us this year and is part of a sizable group of women that will present their selections, including Haubrich, Erin Wiles, Lauren Keefer and Mary Fisher. Also returning are a powerful contingent from the Get Born Readings scene: Joseph Sulier, Brock Walker, Mathieu Paul and Ken "the jokes are in there, Kids" Brown. Joining us for the first time are Sean Arnold, Lauren Keefer, Mary Fisher and Typewriter Tim Jordan.
We'll be missing a couple folks this year due to life and death and time constraints, etc...
I know that there are many who have performed in the past that I am not including here, but have to mention that I will always miss those that joined us since I've been at the helm of the event and brought it to the stage: Hunter Brumfield (R.I.P), Ben Hanna, Bob Wilcox, Agnes Wilcox, Joe Wetteroth, Mariah Richardson, Greg Hazleton Kevin McCameron and Cynthia Sutton, to name a few.
There will be many highlights this year, but perhaps the most theatrical of the event will be that of Tim Jordan in his persona BodyBag Man while channeling William S. Burroughs.
Yep.
I've decided to deliver Brion Gysin to the stage and will do so before or after Master Jordan's performance.
After all of that, we'll have the musical stylings of the St. Louisans of Humdrum http://www.myspace.com/humdrumsound and
Jason and the Beast
http://www.myspace.com/jasonandthebeast
You might want to cancel any Tuesday morning activities!

Here is the lineup in no particular order:
Phil Gounis---Lawrence Ferlinghetti
Brock Walker---Gary Snyder??/Peter Orlovsky???
Bob Putnam---Herbert Huncke
Ken Brown---Charles Bukowski
Sean Arnold---D.A. Levy
Mathieu Paul---Hubert Selby, Jr.

Vanishing Point

Tonight @ The Focal Point

POETRY at the POINT
Tuesday Mar 24, 2009- Doors Open @ 7pm
Free and Open to Public


JOSEPH SULIER
...was born and raised in the fields and creeks of Fenton Missouri, since then he's hung
his hat in St. Louis, St. Paul, Los Angeles, Brooklyn, and Philadelphia. Sulier has been published in Get Born (Sulier is also the founder and organizer of GB magazine and reading series) and 52nd City Magazines, he's also appeared on KDHX's Literature For The Halibut and had his brain picked for St. Louis Magazine.


BROCK WALKER
.... is native Saint Louisan residing currently in historic North Saint Louis city with Holden
(the cat, not Caulfied) and is currently unpublished as far as he knows. He has been rumored to read with 'Get Born' and looks back on his slam days with one squinty eye, but not unfondly. Currently he cannot pay rent but he is smiling all the same, having a new perspective and/or (possibly) philosophy on life after adventuring the West Coast for the first time in his life. He is also proficient in the trombone, bass guitar, currently is teaching himself the violin, and may play for you when the notes come out properly so that he may communicate by way of something more holy than words (music, that is).


the FOCAL POINT
2720 Sutton Blvd, Maplewood, MO 63143
The Focal Point is located one block east of the intersection of Big Bend and Manchester on Sutton Blvd in Maplewood. Travel one block south on Sutton from Manchester to 2720 Sutton Blvd., the east side of the street. Some street parking is available, and a well-lit parking lot is a short walk away on nearby Marietta Street, just off Sutton before you reach the Focal Point.
