Common Meter presents First Annual Anniversary Showcase Live Music & Poetry

Saturday, June 1 from 3:30pm – 5:30pm

It’s time to party! Common Meter Press is proud to say it has been officially publishing books for a year, and that requires a celebration! They’ve invited past and current poets, friends, strangers, and loved ones to join us at The Rabbit Box Theatre on June 1, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., for an evening of poetry, conversation, and more. If their Becoming Visible launch party was any indication, there won’t be a dry eye in the house.

Up first, they’ll have a Q&A and reading with their newest poet Cass Garison (Beauty Exasperated: Poems After George Eliot) and one of our first poets, Irene Loy (I’ve Named the Goddamned Ravens), as they share poems and experiences from their chapbooks.

Up next, Alex Rasmussen (Becoming Visible) will lead us in the round with poetry and music from himself, Carl Christensen (Voicings), Lucas Van Linden (Becoming Visible), along with special guest and Chin Music Press poet, Rasheena Fountain.

Doors at 3pm ~ Readings & Music begin at 3:30pm

Tickets $12 adv. / $15 door
