This week, I fly out to Portland for the first time and I’ll be doing three shows while I’m out there. I assure you that no setlist will be the same so you will be handsomely rewarded if you come to one, two, or all three of my shows. And here we go.

Thursday, May 3 @ 9 pm – Broetry Night at The Treehouse – this is an open mic house show that is free but donations are accepted for the feature (which I would appreciate the food or booze money)

Sunday, May 6 @ 8 pm – Portland Poetry Slam at Backspace – my first slam feature since 2010 and my 33rd birthday. I might be doing the Sharpening the Pen workshop beforehand, which would also be cool.

Tuesday, May 8 @ 8 pm – Small Doggies Readings Series at Blue Monk – surprise! I’m featuring here, but will (hopefully) be able to host the best of There Will Be Words on Skype (since I’ll be three hours in the past at the same time).

Between those dates, I’ll be hanging out, working on the novel (almost 39k by the way), seeing The Avengers, and doing other adventurous stuff. See you soon.
