February Ruckus and other announcements from the Ruckus fam!

9 Feb

Hello all,

January’s Ruckus (opening night) was off the hook; photos have been uploaded, see below. We had a standing-room only crowd and all of the performers shared innovative, thought-provoking and seriously groundbreaking work. Thank you to all of last month’s performers and the fabulous audience members who brought so much heart to the event.

I’m excited to share the news about an upcoming event brought to us by J Mase III, who opened last month’s show in stellar fashion (See January Ruckus performer bios for more on J Mase III). The event, Cupid Ain’t @#!%: An Anti-Valentines Day Poetry Movement, will be hosted at Bluestockings Bookstore, Cafe, and Activist Center (our home- and heart-base) on Saturday, February 12th, from 8:00-10:00pm. With a fantastic lineup of writers bringing raw poetry to NYC’s broken-hearted and lovelorn from Philly, this is an event you shouldn’t miss. I’m definitely going to be there and hope to see you among the many in the crowd.

And consider this an official save-the-date for February’s Ruckus, which will take place on Saturday, February 26th at 7:00pm at Bluestockings. The official Facebook invite along with lineup announcement and photos and bios will be up in the next couple of days, so don’t forget to check back for details. There is still one performer slot open for the show this month, so hit me up as soon as possible if you’d like to perform. You can send work samples in the body of an email to lettersfrombklyn at gmail.

Thanks for reading and coming back to look at the site. It’s fantastic to witness the positive feedback and excitement Ruckus has been receiving in just one month of being around. Feel free to leave your comments below. We’re definitely interested in hearing what you have to say!
