Pick of the Day: Vertigo Reading Series

This is just a quickie as I’m kind of strapped for time and energy right now. Tonight at Aegean Coffee (1801 Hamilton St.) at 7 p.m. there’s a fundraiser for the League of Canadian Poets. Reading will be no less than seven local poets: Anne Campbell, gillian harding-russell, Judith Krause, Lynda Monahan, Bruce Rice, Andrew Stubbs and Kathleen Wall. Admission is five beans, so don’t be mean, or obscene, by declining to plop down the green, or be afraid to be seen, as a supporter of the art scene,  during these dismayingly reactionary and philistine times.

To celebrate the poetic spirit, here’s a link to the Tragicially Hip performing their song “Poets” live in Dublin in 2009. (YouTube)
