Join us for an evening with David Abel and David Longoria. David A. will perform a kind of hybrid reading, which comes out of such traditions as concrete poetry, sound poetry, and minimalist music, and which involves performative poetic pieces, some entirely aural, as well as short projections.

David Abel is the proprietor of Passages Bookshop, which has just moved into new quarters in the Towne Storage Building in Portland’s Central Eastside. At the same location, he co-curates monthly exhibitions at The Gallery with Adam Davis and Kate Schaefer of Division Leap, and offers editorial services and teaches writing through the Text Garage. His recent books of poems include Float (Chax Press), a collection of collage texts spanning twenty-five years; Tether (Barebone books), a chapbook of poems; and Carrier (c_L Books), a hypergraphic visual sequence. He is also the author of many artist’s books, most recently While You Were In (disposable books) and dual coup (press-press-pull). With Sam Lohmann, he publishes the Airfoil chapbook series, and from 2002–12 he published twenty-four issues of the free broadside series Envelope. Over the past decade he has devised more than thirty performance, film, theater, and intermedia projects, both solo and with a wide range of collaborators; he also organized the exhibitions Chax Press: Publishing Poetics for PNCA and Object Poems for 23 Sandy Gallery. He is a founding member of the Spare Room reading series, now in its thirteenth year, and an inaugural Research Fellow of the Center for Art + Environment of the Nevada Museum of Art. He lives in Portland, Oregon.

David Longoria was born in Houston, Texas. He is a singer, songwriter, and poet living in Austin, Texas. Influenced by the songs of Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones, Hank Williams, etc., Longoria plays guitar and harmonica. In 2002 Longoria formed The Black, a country rock band performing with as few as two and as many as ten members. He has performed or toured with the Trail of Dead, Yo La Tengo, James Hand, Deertick, Fiery Furnaces, Joe Ely, Shiva’s Headband, The Sword, and Voxtrot.
