The Third Thursday Poetry Night featuring Murrow


The next Third Thursday Poetry Night is December 15 with featured performers Murrow (Thom Francis and Keith Spencer).

Murrow is Thom Francis (spoken word, samples, effects & video, composition) and Keith Spencer (guitar, bass, keys, computers, layers, composition) masterfully blend spoken word with samples, video and a plethora of instruments.

Murrow is promising to bring a couple of new pieces to the reading along with some of their classics like “Trucker” (see video below) and the ever-popular, show stopper “Female Pedestrian”.

The Poetry Motel Foundation presents the monthly Third Thursday Poetry Night at the Social Justice Center (33 Central Ave., Albany, NY).  Sign up starts at 7:00PM, the open mic begins at 7:30. Each open mic poet gets to read one poem, though since it is the Holiday Season, Dan may make an exception. There is a suggested donation of $3.00 (more if you got it, less if you can’t).

Here is the information from host Dan Wilcox via the Facebook event page:

Featuring “Murrow” (Thom Francis on Word, Keith Spencer on Guitar), with an open mic for community poets & the annual visit from Sanity Claus with a gift for each open mic poet. $3.00 donation.
