  • Burned at the Stake in the Name of Poetry | The Boston Typewriter Orchestra
    Name of Poetry I guess half of the songs we play do have words so the fact that we ve been invited to perform at the Massachusetts Poetry Festival in Salem isn t completely ridiculous But I d be shocked to find out that more than a small handful of the other participants in the festival have a typewriter in their apartment that serves anything more than ornamental function Truth be told though I am gonna try to get Charles Simic to come and solo on a song with us if I can find any way to get close enough to him to propose the idea The Festival begins on Friday but our performance is scheduled for Sunday morning at 11 30am in the auditorium of the Peabody Essex Museum We re hoping to make a fun show of it all and have a couple new songs that we plan to debut on stage as well Hopefully we won t have a lynch mob waiting at the edge of the stage ready to dunk us in water to see if we float when we re finished May 1 2016 Massachusetts Poetry Festival 11 30a Morse Auditorium Peabody Essex Museum 161
