“Band + Poetry” Happy Hours
Friday to Friday, February 6 to 13, at the Casa del Popolo — Free
The FVA is proud to host no-cover Happy Hours with a come-one, come-all policy. They let us feature new voices and take more chances. Last year’s “5 à 7” with their “Band + Poetry” theme were a rip-roaring success, so we’re bringing them back with instrumentals that are even more biting — and that’s all we’re allowed to say right now. Each of the bands has invited a poet/performer to jam with them for our greater listening pleasure. It’s a great way to begin the evening, in the sparkle and warmth of the dear old Casa.
