A genuine listening room show at Nancy O’s, with the beat-box poet CR Avery! Tickets available at Nancy O’s restaurant.
Cue the frenzied combo of molar and spit.
his tongue touches every chroma on its way to blue.
he’s been rinsing with gravel, flossing with wire
and chewing brick again, he’s been a bad, bad boy.
but he is crackerjack conjurer of washboards and
rubber, even suburb girls welcome the twinging. i
want to nibble yesterday’s corona from his chin, rub
my index finger along the surface of his laugh, pull
the maw open to check the slick road of his throat.
there’s something illegal going on down there, the
sweet keening of ancient instruments. the orchestra
is fidgety, click-hipped, steaming inside that skin.
the boy opens the beauteous and, in gut rendering,
words become both otherwise and everything.
-P. Smith “What Men Do With Their Mouths”
This is a listening show, which means talking will be strongly discouraged during the performance. Tickets are $20 and available in advance at Nancy O’s. A limited amount will be available at the door of the event.

CR will be joined by local music man Danny Bell. Danny is an accordion-based singer-songwriter and percussionist. His songs are pure & simple, sweeping superfluity off of the table so we can stay near the ground. His Disappointments change, but are always people with instruments. Danny Bell and His Disappointments released their debut album, “Good Timin’ Man” on September 21st.
Tickets $20 – Available at Nancy O’s restaurant
