The Poets Speak Loud open mic series continues at McGeary’s in downtown Albany on Monday, June 24, with featured reader Dan Vollweiler.
Dan Vollweiler is America’s most attractive poet (clearly). He has been writing poetry since the poetry bug bit him at an early age and infected him with rhyme disease. From tweenage poems lampooning the O.J. Simpson trial and Tickle Me Elmo, he has matured into poems about Kinkos, mom jeans and competitive mall-walking. No absurdity, whether political, social or autobiographical is safe from his puckish pen. He wishes to follow in the footsteps of his literary idol, Mark Twain. He also wishes to follow in the footsteps of a rich man with a hole in his pocket.
Poets Speak Loud is Albany Poets’ long-running monthly open mic for poetry and spoken word with a featured poet hosted by local poet Mary Panza at McGeary’s (4 Clinton Square) in downtown Albany on the last Monday of each and every month.
Sign-up for the open mic is 7:00 pm, we start at 8 pm.
