Pick of the Day: Shane Koyczan & Short Story Long

Shane Kyczan (pictured) is a spoken word artist. If you caught the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, he was one of the acts that was featured. Last month, he released a CD of spoken word called Remembrance Years with musical accompaniment by Short Story Long.

Tonight, Koyczan and his musical partners are at Artesian on 13th Doors are at 7:30 p.m., and tickets are $15 adv. and $18 door.

To give you a sample, here’s video from last April of Koyczan reciting his poem “Wasted Vote”.
