Just got this in from Margot Malia Lynch about a new music/poetry/spoken word series up in Saratoga. Sounds very interesting and should be a great time, especially considering where the inspiration came from.

This is going to be a very interesting and organic process. I have a clear vision of how I would like it to go but new projects like this take time to get in the groove. I hope you’ll stop in a be a part of the process. I’ve been wanting to bring the poetry and music phenomenon to my hometown for several years and am ECSTATIC it’s happening.

The Putnam Den just opened up this summer and is a FABULOUS, huge NYC warehouse like spot. There’s couches, plenty of breathing space, murals.
I remember when I was going to the Poetry Jam in boston from the beginning. It feels awesome to be a part of a growing and evolving creative community. The Poetry Jam is celebrating it’s 13TH YEAR. www.poetryjam.com Let’s make this!
Your help in spreading the word is awesome to me.
