Duck Village Stage at AERONAUT, Wednesday, October 12

This week on the Duck Village Stage:
6pm - Poets and Pints
8pm - Michael Hustedde, violin; Amberley Lamphere, viola
10pm - Poetry Lab

​​The Duck Village Stage is a pop up recording and broadcast venue for performing arts in the Aeronaut Brewing Company's taproom at 14 Tyler Street, Somerville. Duck Village Stage pays homage to the prohibition era Somerville speakeasies in the Duck Village neighborhood which is a stone's throw away on the other side of the railroad tracks. We're highlighting new and innovative new community events and pioneering performances in music, dance and theater, and broadcasting, recording and archiving the performances each and every Wednesday night. Don't stay home! Duck in for a fun time!

6pm - Poets and Pints

​The greater Somerville and Cambridge area is lucky to have such a vibrant poetry community. So, once a month we will gather at the community space at Aeronaut on the Duck Village stage, to celebrate that community with readings by three local poets. This month we feature:

Kim Garcia is the author of The Brighter House, winner of The White Pine Press Poetry Prize 2015, Drone, winner of the 2015 Backwaters Prize, Tales of the Sisters, winner of the 2015 Sow’s Ear Chapbook Contest, and Madonna Magdalene, released by Turning Point Books in 2006. Her poems have appeared in Crab Orchard Review, Crazyhorse, Mississippi Review, Nimrodand Subtropics, and her work has been featured on The Writer’s Almanac. Recipient of the 2014 Lynda Hull Memorial Prize, an AWP Intro Writing Award, a Hambidge Fellowship and an Oregon Individual Artist Grant, Garcia teaches creative writing at Boston College.

Daniel Tobin is the author of seven books of poems, Where the World is Made, Double Life, The Narrows, Second Things, Belated Heavens, The Net, and the book-length poem From Nothing. His critical studies include Passage to the Center: Imagination and the Sacred in the Poetry of Seamus Heaney and Awake in America. He is the editor of The Book of Irish American Poetry from the Eighteenth Century to the Present, Poet’s Work, Poet’s Play: Essays on the Practice and the Art (with Pimone Triplett), Light in Hand: The Selected Early Poems of Lola Ridge, and The Collected Early Poems of Lola Ridge.

JR is currently working on his second collection of poems titled “Since When He Have Wings”.
