Spoken Word and Music Thursday Night at Poets? Hall by Cory Vaillancourt

Poets’ Hall may be relatively new to your cultural consciousness, but that’s about to change. The Erie Reader editorial board – which includes some picky, ornery, grouchy characters – stopped in last Saturday night and were collectively blown away; the only reason this place gets two thumbs up is because none of us has three.

Here’s your chance to see what all this thumb-raising is about: stop by 1136 East Lake Road on Thursday, Sept. 27 at 8 p.m. and catch Steve Trohoske, Tony Grey, Rickie Hopkins, and Monica Igras for the third in a series of three musical and spoken word performances held in this intimate venue. Bring your own booze, walk through the door, drop a couple of bucks in the fishbowl (suggested donation is whatever you think you can afford) and grab a seat on one of the big comfy couches. Owner Cee Williams has big plans for this place, so stop in and remember to bring your third thumb; there’s sure to be cool poetry and hot tunes.

For more information on Thursday night’s show or other upcoming events at Poets’ Hall, find them on Facebook – and give them a "like," will ya? There’s no reason a place like this in Erie should only have 85 likes.
