The Poetry Brothel: 10th Annual Masquerade Ball!

Welcome to a unique and immersive poetry event that takes poetry outside classrooms and lecture halls and places it in the lush interiors of a bordello. The Madame presents a rotating cast of poets, each operating within a carefully crafted character, who impart their work in public readings, spontaneous eruptions of poetry, and most distinctly, as purveyors of private poetry readings on beds, chaise lounges and in private rooms. For a small fee, all of the poets are available for these sequestered readings at any time during the event. Of course, any true bordello need a good cover; ours is an immersive cabaret featuring burlesque, live music, vaudeville, aerials, visual art, magic, mysticism, with newly integrated themes, performances and installations at each event.

According to the great Oscar Wilde, "Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth." That couldn't be more true at The Poetry Brothel, and our 10th Annual Masquerade Ball (10th annual, what?!) promises to bring you more truth, beauty, hilarity, and intimacy than ever before. We're bringing back one of our favorites, esteemed guest poet Steph Burt, along with burlesque artists Mademoiselle Estelle & Puss N Boots, aerialists The Lost Boys, house band The Hot Club of Flatbush, musical act Sarian, sketchy sketch artist Too Loose, palm reader and jewelry maker Holy Crow, a slew of poetry whores, and, of course, your hosts, The Madame, Mister Charley, and Tennessee Pink. This one will surely be a celebration for the ages--bigger, better, truer, and weirder than ever! 

Doors open at 8pm; show starts at 9pm. Masks and/or formalwear are encouraged but not required. This event is 21+.

The Love Witch (2016) in 35mm

Shows at 2PM and 7PM!

From filmmaker Anna Biller: Elaine (Samantha Robinson), a beautiful young witch, is determined to find a man to love her. In her gothic Victorian apartment she makes spells and potions, then picks up men and seduces them. However, her spells work too well, and she ends up with a string of hapless victims. When she at last meets the man of her dreams, her desperation to be loved drives her to the brink of insanity and murder. 

The Love Witch received positive reviews from critics, earning a Rotten Tomatoes approval rating of 97%, its consensus reads: "The Love Witch offers an absorbing visual homage to a bygone era, arranged subtly in service of a thought-provoking meditation on the battle of the sexes."

"Ms. Biller's movie, like its heroine, presents a fascinating, perfectly composed, brightly colored surface. What's underneath is marvelously dark, like love itself." The New York Times / A. O. Scott

The Love Witch is listed as #30 on Rotten Tomatoes' list of the Top 100 Horror Movies It also made Rolling Stone's list of the top 10 Horror Movies of 2016, The New Yorker's list of the Best Movies of 2016, and Indiewire's list of The Best Movies of 2016.

New York Poetry Festival

  • Governors Island New York, NY (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The New York City Poetry Festival, the largest gathering of its kind, returns to Governors Island this summer -- and with exciting news. After six years wrapped in the breezy embrace of Colonel's Row, The New York City Poetry Festival is migrating east across the island to picturesque Nolan Park. The move is designed to give our growing festival a little breathing room and some new possibilities. Nolan Park is more than twice the size of Colonel's Row, ringed with a collection of beautiful Victorian houses, and tucked beneath the wide, green canopies of dozens of century old trees. This summer we will transform our festival into a poetry village! In addition to our three main stages, along with the The Ring of Daisies Open Mic and The Children's Poetry Festival, Governor's Island has invited us to occupy and program the trellised porches that circle the park. With all this new space to explore, we are working harder than ever to bring more poetry and poetry lovers to the island. With that in mind and with the help of our newest festival partner, The Strand Bookstore, we are redoubling our outreach in order to make this the biggest and most culturally significant festival we have ever produced. 

The goal of The New York City Poetry Festival is to be the most egalitarian and inclusive poetry gathering in the world. Since it's inception the festival has remained free and open to the public. Any group or organization involved in the creation or appreciation of poetry is invited to curate a thirty minute reading on one of the festival's three main stages, and all completed applications are accepted on a first come first served basis until the festival roster is full. We also offer tables to any organization or vendor who wishes to participate in our Vendors' Village / Book Fair at a rate of $50 for the weekend. You can also sponsor the event, vounteer for us, or, if you are a visual, multimedia, or performance artist, you may apply to install your artwork. We also welcome other ideas: workshops, lectures, seminars, discussions, activites. This festival belongs to you, the people of New York City, so please feel free to find a way to get invovled!

We are so excited to see you out on the island!

The festival is large and there are not many places to sit down so plan accordingly - comfortable shoes and pack some sunblock! {Rain date - September 25th}

Allston Christmas - Free show w/ Blake Babies ft. Juliana Hatfield, The Doped Up Dollies, Weakened Friends, Dutch Rebelle

FREE WITH RSVP: 
do617.com/xmas
the Blake Babies
The Doped Up Dollies
Weakened Friends
Dutch ReBelle

ALL AGES WELCOME:

Allston Rock City gets even louder this year as a reunited Blake Babies will take the stage on Saturday, September 10 at POP Allston for the main event block party of the newly expanded Allston's Awesome Christmas.

The legendary Boston alternative rock band, who became a college radio mainstay in the 1980s and launched the career of Juliana Hatfield, will headline the two year old event. Once merely an idea on a bar napkin, last year's Allston Christmas Block Party will join forces with Awesome Day Fest for three massive days and nights of locally grown live music and comedy on September 9, 10, and 11.

Do617 Content Manager Clay N. Ferno says, "In an age of band reunions for Boston rock bands, we are honored that Blake Babies will be gracing our stage. Juliana (Hatfield) along with John and Freda are back, and before they head on tour, they join our Awesome free party in Allston.

An outdoor concert venue welcoming the students back into town pays homage to similar events that used to happen in the '90s as we move forward into the age of food trucks, outdoor adult fun and community activity. Are you registered to vote yet, kids? Let's rock it this year."

Blake Babies last played live earlier this year, which marked the band's first performances since 2001. Presented by Pabst Blue Ribbon x Boston and supported by Do617.com and Allston Village Main Streets, with additional sponsorship from Deep Eddy Vodka, Allston's Awesome Christmas is a truly local, ground-up festival, welcoming old and new residents to the Hub while established as well as fresh talent in the Boston music community. The main event block party on Saturday will also feature performances by up-and-coming hip hop artist Dutch Rebelle, Boston punk mainstays the Doped Up Dollies, and alternative rock upstarts Weakened Friends. Red Bull sponsors the mobile stage...and always giving us energy. Keeping with the theme of welcoming new and old Bostonians, hip hop staple JAM'N 945will be bringing their Campus Invasion voter registration station as well.Sparkling Ice will be providing some tasty flavors for us to sample. Our friends at Hint Water will be keeping us hydrated. Vice Cream will be providing delicious ice cream samples.

In addition, this year brings Awesome Day Fest-curated stages at Great Scott and O'Brien's Pub into the fold with shows on Friday and Saturday nights, with performances by Jake McKelvie & the CountertopsThe Sheila Divine, Black Helicopter, Eldridge Rodriguez, and more. 

Wristbands for individual shows are $12, with a $20 wristband available for access to all four nighttime shows.

Stay tuned to Do617.com and allstonsawesomechristmas.com for more updates as the weekend gets closer!
