May 17
Spoken Word Sandwich # 7
Enjoy the Spoken Word Sandwich #7, from 8 to 11 p.m. May 17, at the Croatian Cultural Center in San Pedro.
The Spoke Word Sandwich #7 is an evening of word jazz and poetry.
Spoken Word Sandwich #7 will feature music by Garretson & Gorodetsky; L.A. spoken word artist Rich Ferguson; poet/Lummox Press publisher Raindog; and the Circuitry & Poetry of Mona Jean Cedar’s communicative arts of dance, poetry, and sign language, accompanied by Jeff Boynton and his homemade/modified electronic instruments.
Weba Garretson and Ralph Gorodetsky will perform “What Must the Hummingbird
See?” that is a backyard song cycle of 15 short pieces about the daily occurrences of our urban wilderness, where skunks, opossums, owls, hawks, and cats manage to thrive. The music evokes a multitude of influences — from Hank Williams to Hanns Eisler. Their program will be divided into four 15-minute sets, and in between each set each poet will perform a 15-minute set, hence the “sandwich” effect.
