This Saturday: The Bowery Poetry Club
I always enjoy myself at The Bowery Poetry Club’s events. The people they feature are always authentic and unbelievably talented. Ever since I was young I have been a fan of poetry, I even used to write a little back in the day! Well, if you are a fan of poetry definitely come out to this event on Saturday featuring spoken word artist and slam poet Carlos Gomez. Expand this post for more info on the event! or click HERE.

Hosting between 20 and 30 shows a week the Bowery Poetry Club (BPC) is proud of our place in the lineage of populist art: the Yiddish theater, burlesque, vaudeville, beat poetry, jazz, and punk that gave the Bowery its name. Located in “HoBo” at the corner of Houston and Bowery.
