August 26, 2012 is our 2nd seasonal session of Poetry at Pat’s in the Flats from 11am to 3pm featuring poets Mary Weems, Russ Vidrick, Tom Orange, Steve Thomas, Milenko Budimir, and Shelley Chernin with music by Malphonia (who are Joe Milan on accordion and vocals, Steven Mastroianni on euphonium, trumpet, vocals, the stylings of Milenko Budimir on Micro-Percussion). Open mic to follow as time permits, although I may open with open mic as well . . . being emcee, I can do that.
Poetry at Pat’s in the Flats is put together by Jean Brandt of the Brandt Gallery and happens once each season. This is Summer Session.
