They have come together with this luxurious infusion of sound that offers a wide range of styles to please people of all ages.

Among the extensive list of venues they have debuted are the Indiana State Museum, the Indianapolis Artsgarden, Broad Ripple Art Fair, and the Carmel International Arts Fair. The Trio has also performed for numerous private events, folk series, and house concerts.

Tue
Tue, Jan 21, 2020 7:30 PM - Tue, Jan 21, 2020 10:30 PM @ Shelton Auditorium | Butler Arts Center

This event takes place at the Shelton Auditorium on Butler’s South Campus and is free and open to the public.

Los Angeles Times Book Prize Finalist / Academy of American Poets Chancellor

For more than thirty years, poet Marie Howe has been transforming ordinary life into extraordinary visions. As Arthur Sze, the most recent National Book Award winner for poetry, has said, “Her poems are acclaimed for writing through loss with verve, but they also find the miraculous in the ordinary and transform quotidian incidents into enduring revelation.” As Howe herself puts it, she is obsessed “with the metaphysical, the spiritual dimensions of life as they present themselves in this world.”

Howe’s most recent volume of poetry is Magdalene (2018), which was long-listed for the National Book Award. Her other books are The Good Thief (1999), a National Poetry Series selection; The Kingdom of Ordinary Time (2009), a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize; and What the Living Do (1999), a wrenching, plain-spoken elegy for her brother John, who died of an AIDS-related illness in 1989.

Howe has received numerous honors, including fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Bunting Institute. From 2012 to 2014, she served as Poet Laureate of New York State, and in 2018 she was elected a chancellor of the Academy of American Poets. She lives in New York City, where she teaches at New York University and Sarah Lawrence College.

It’s our annual strictly open-mic show and only $5 cover!

Artists will only be allotted 5-7 minutes to perform, so keep that in mind.

Signup is at the event, on a 1st come 1st spit basis and will be cut off at 13 artists.

Sexism, homophobia, islamophobia, transphobia, xenophobia will in NO WAY BE TOLERATED

(Signup will not guarantee performance and at discretion of our founder, Tatjana Rebelle)
