From Canal to Can Factory
Tue Jul 3 2007
The unique Brooklyn reading series known as Littoral might be jumping from its space on the Gowanus Canal to the Old American Can Factory, but one look at tonight's poetry-and-sound collaboration should prove that the curators haven't lost their flare for wack-job lineups. The reader will be Joe Wenderoth (above), a poet whose work includes the formally innovative and unhinged Letters to Wendy's, in which a habitual Wendy's diner shares his daily eating experiences, sexual fantasies, philosophical musings on language and much more. He's joined by Gibby Haynes, the onetime Butthole Surfer who was glimpsed last year in The Devil and Daniel Johnston (in the dentist's chair, no less) and who, one can assume, has not lost his penchant for being an irrepressible screw-up.
