I suppose if ODB released a solo album it would have had a far less G rated title. Thanks for reading.
Thanks for the comments. There will definitely be something for everyone, except the younger crowd, who will likely be priced out anyway. This will be a good festival for the target demographic, those of us who grew up listening to groups like Smash Mouth (Fush Yu Mang was one of the first albums I bought with my own money).
Have a good gig!
Thanks for the comment, Steven. You are correct, the library slam was the the predecessor of the NBPS. It was mentioned in the article as Brianna's first slam, which later created energy for another regularly-occurring slam. It's a shame that its funding was cut. I went to one years back and it was well-attended. Moral of the story, stop cutting budgets from literary programs, especially libraries.
Is the Matt Cain.... perfect?
