Matypalooza! A band of poets smash the mysteries of Esworthian Po-Mo!
On February 23, a multitude of performers, organized and directed b Harrisburg's reigning poet laureate, Rick Kearns, will perform, well, interpret, poetry written by Marty Esworthy. Seating is limited, doors open at 6:45pm.
Esworthian verse strives to examine the living evolution of art, ethos, physics and ethnology. His varied works (installations, object appreciation, wave theory, verbo-visualities and throat-singing) pinball between arts, audiology and Shock Performance to jangle limits of perception and to raise awareness of evaporating sound and mound continua.

Imagine the spirit of Dada, Duchamp, John Cage, Spike Jones, Peggy Guggenheim, Hugo Winterhalter, and frenetic memories of Polikushka lurking in accents yet unspoken.

Performers include Kearns, Kevyn Knox, Tru Selvey, Anna Jane, Jeanette Trout, John Catalano, Le Hinton, Jennifer Huff Dutson, Gillian Branstetter, Michael Lear-Olimpi, Mikaela Rylee Phillips and more. O, what a night!
A measured open reading (7pm) will precede the madding feature. The Almost Uptown Poetry Cartel has hosted Poetry Thursdays, a community reading series since 1999. Now, weekly, at the Midtown Scholar, 1302 North Third Street, Harrisburg, PA 17102. Phone: 717.236.1680.
