New Free Verse Ain’t Nothing to Fuck With
From the extended family behind the Drunken Masters liquored-up poetry sessions comes a new nighttime inspirational imbibement series. Wu-Tang Verses L.A. will eventually become a printed chapbook and internet series dedicated to the harder-than-it-sounds poetry form of free verse.
But first, it’s a night of music, listening, writing and dancing (and drinking, obviously), dedicated not only to the game-changing music of Wu-Tang Clan, but to their collective creative ethos, political engagement and disruption of convention.You’re on your own with the bar tab, but pens and paper (remember those?) are on the house.
