Yesterday night, Jeremy Sallon, Ian Sinkovits, Ernie Burns and myself gathered at the Torriano Bar‘s basement room to read poetry. We featured the lovely Rachael Black and had a great bunch of open mic poets as well. I’m madly in love with the venue. It’s at 71-73 Torriano Avenue, Kentish Town. We’ll be there again on June 17th, come check us out!

More than anything, I love the fact that there’s a piano in there. Just last Friday I was at the Tea House Theatre for Paper Tiger Poetry (hosted by Alain English), and was longingly looking at their piano, thinking how nice it would be to work at a venue with one. Now I do! So, pianists wanted. The Torriano Bar basement is a small room with a great atmosphere, and I’m sure a bit of bluesy instrumental music would suit it just perfectly.
