Windmill Bicycle Poetry Hoedown!!

Whether you're heading out of town to avoid the approaching SXSW madness or getting pumped for the approaching SXSW awesomeness, get prepped for both this Wednesday at your favorite neighborhood bike shop, Windmill Bicycles! The show that night will be the equivalent of Arsenio Hall, Mark Wahlberg, and a pizza starring in a buddy flick in space directed by Zadie Smith and scored by Cyndi Lauper. Or at least the equivalent of Rock Hudson's jaw. Poets Anis Mojgani and Grant Cross will be sharing work that Michiko Kakutani of the NY Times famously said "I enjoy this shared work more than the thought of a film about the friendship between say, an 80s talk show host, a rapper-turned-movie star, and a pizza. And that's saying a lot!" Notorious grump Harold Bloom has had this to say: "There are three things I like--Chaucer, upsetting people, and Anis Mojgani & Grant Cross readings." This stellar eve may even have the possibility of being graced by Arrow Strike, but one of the bands out of the brains of Windmill's sibling proprietors, Donny and Marie Osmond. Doors are at 7:30pm (though, as an operating place of business, technically they're at noon…), show at 8:30! Neil Patrick Harris will not be hosting* ••• Anis Mojgani is a two time National Poetry Slam individual champion and winner of the International World Cup Poetry Slam. He is the author of three books from Write Bloody Publishing and currently has a beard. ••• Grant Cross writes haiku to make sense of the madness He loves swimming best arrived in Texas day after his first birthday born in Illinois grew up in the burbs moved to the Northwest, moved back will die in the sky writes to stay alive works only when he has to wiggles & wiggles Grant's book of haiku, Palm, is published by Monofonus Press. ••• Arrow Strike plays loud music for folks with loud hearts, and soundtrack the the days of the citizens of Planet Kicks Ass. See yall there!! *no guarantee
