Hello my lovelies! It’s been a while since a Poetry Brothel event featuring yours truly rolled around, but this Sunday it’s going to happen! I’ll be at the Mardis Gras-themed Brothel at the Back Room the evening of February 23rd, dressed in all Fanny Firewater’s finer, sipping whiskey or absinthe, and providing private readings to interested Johns for a small fee. If you don’t know about the Brothel, here’s the pitch:
The Poetry Brothel is an interactive poetry experience set up as a fin de siècle brothel in New Orleans/Paris. The evening also consists of live music, burlesque performances, vaudeville, fortune tellers and other related acts. This month’s theme is Mardi Gras! Considerable time and effort has been expended to replicate the glamorous decor of an upscale seraglio on Fat Tuesday. The purple, green and gold sequined back room is for the exclusive enjoyment of Poetry Brothel johns that request private readings. Laissez les Bons Temps Rouler!
This time around, we’ll be featuring an open gin/absinthe/whiskey bar from 8 – 9 p.m., music by Jason Prover and The Sneak Thievery Orchestra, burlesque by Foxx Von Tempt and Rosabelle Salavy, and a featured reading from renowned poet/author Jennifer Michael Hecht. Get your tickets here!
