New York Temptation: Waldman — Arcade — Holman

One thing D. Kimm brought back from her six-month stay in New York is this line-up of fervent, provocative, avant-garde artists. Poet, performer and consummate showman Bob Holman is the founder and artistic director of the Bowery Poetry Club in New York. He will be joined by the Brahja Waldman’s Quartet. Anne Waldman, who fell in love with us at the 2004 FVA, is a monument. A poet, performer, and cultural and political activist, she co-founded with Allen Ginsberg the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at the Naropa Institute (now Naropa University) in Colorado. She will be joined by her son, musician Ambrose Bye. The legendary Penny Arcade is known for her experimental theatre and disorderly performances. A teen superstar at the Andy Warhol Factory, she toured the world before returning to New York to live.
