Stay tuned for the next B&B benefit party in Jerry Ferraz's backyard! Here's some video of the last one!
POETS! every 1st & 3rd Monday
Monday, August 19th – 7-9 pm
Poets Owen Dunkel + Greg Pond
open mic follows
Hosted by San Francisco troubadour-in-chief Jerry Ferraz and San Francisco Poet Laureate Kim Shuck. Owen was writing serious poetry from the time of the late ’60s ferment at SFSU and continues to this day; Greg has four highly regarded collections of poems to his name. Both fine poets, for sure! No charge, but bring a few bucks to help us reward the featured poets! Sign up for the open mic before the features at 7, or during the break.
