Our shindigs are an amazing mixture of live music and poetry performances. This event is guaranteed fun as we present two courageous music acts, Mercutio and the Constantines, and Faberge. These two independent acts present eclectic music styles of their own. If the music isn’t inviting enough, four Houston poets will be on stage. Daniel Rifenburgher, Jane Chance, Mary Kimmel, and Vera Ikon bring out a variety of poems regarding controversial themes such as sexuality and current events. Come out to our party of shock and awe!

Hosted by TZPress founder Dustin Pickering who believes in the power of art and free expression to unite people, bridge understandings, and cultivate rational dialogue. Our country is in need of community events that bring various people together.

Just for one night, let Netflix do it’s own laundry. Outside, the world is interesting. Conversation is a lost art.

If you don’t think you can make it out but would like to support our literary endeavors, you can donate to our ongoing project with Indian scholars here: India Poetry Anthology

Every little bit helps! Thank you.
