2x2 brings together two poet/musician duos in a night of New Poetry, Old School style

New Randy is poet Holly Anderson (“density and loneliness of the City”, NYTimes) and musician Lisa B. Burns (“my personal favorite”, Lenny Kaye).

Bob Holman, proprietor of the Bowery Poetry Club, is “Dean of the Scene” (Seventeen). Vito Ricci is “Downtown Musician Laureate #1” (World Magazine).

Bob Holman w/ Vito Ricci perform from their new CD The Awesome Whatever (Bowery Records): Bob Holman, an originator of the Spoken Word and Slam Poetry scenes, shows how it’s done in nine tracks (plus an Easter Egg encore), produced and with music by his long-time collaborator in rhyme, master musician of Maspeth Vito Ricci. With the zipzap influence of the Hipperama of the Classics, Lord Buckley, and the on-kilter space shots of Captain Beefheart, Holman glides cross genres, boundaries and streams of consciousness like a your own personal tour guide on the road to Nirvana. “Nice work, Bob.” --Lou Reed

New Randy: Q. What happens when a blue-eyed writer and a dark-haired singer conjure Sappho drinking vodkas in a neighborhood bar? A. They start writing about The Nature of Longing and the Longing for Nature. “If you're young and taking love too seriously, if you're old and giving up on it, if you're a guy who can't figure out women, if you're a woman who's not sure how strange you are, you could probably learn something from New Randy. Sure, it's home-made... all the good stuff is.” --Jennifer Kelly, Splendid Magazine. more >>
