The Divine Dominique Lowell on Tap for Two NYC Shows Oct. 17-18

No one does spoken word poetry better than Detroit native Dominique Lowell. I first heard her out west in San Francisco and L.A. and bowed and kissed the ground she walked on every time she performed. She's been called "The Janis Joplin of Spoken Word" and it's a title well deserved. She disappeared for a few years to evolve in her hometown of Detroit and is now reemerging, stronger and more gripping than ever before.

For the first time in 10 years she's performing in NYC to celebrate the release of her latest book on Three Rooms Press: "Sit Yr Ass Down or You Ain't Gettin' No Burger King." Two shows--man, oh man--you should be there. Here's the details:
