Tomorrow night the New Orleans Poetry Brothel is summoning all in the wake of the demise of Storyville, for a show featuring judgement, burlesque, acrobats and (of course) poetry at the AllWays Lounge. The doors open at 9 p.m. and the show starts at 10 p.m. The cover is $10.
The poet Geoff Munsterman will give a guest reading from his new book, published by Lavender Ink, Because the Stars Shine Through It. You can buy a poem from a poetry whore for a suggested donation or just watch the show. There will also be stilt-walking and tarot card reading and a plea for justice as Storyville crumbles. (For a full, dramatically-wrought description, visit the brothel's Facebook page.)
If you wear steampunk/Victorian garb you get a free poetry token.
