Poetry Rodeo with Ellyn Maybe and her Band at Beyond Baroque!

A Monthly Poetry Rodeo Begins on September 30
Hen House Studios is proud to host internationally acclaimed poet, Ellyn Maybe, performing live with her Band September 30th 2010 at 7:30pm. The series will be held at Beyond Baroque Literary Arts Center at 681 Venice Blvd in Venice Beach. Tickets are $7, $5 for Students, Seniors and Children, free for Members with free parking in the lot next to Beyond Baroque.

Ellyn Maybe is the author of The Cowardice of Amnesia, The Ellyn Maybe Coloring Book, Putting My 2 Cents In, Walking Barefoot in the Glassblowers Museum, Praha and the Poet and A Talk With Nature. Rodeo for the Sheepish was featured as the top album of 2010 in famed critic Greil Marcus’s column for The Believer magazine. Ellyn opened the MTV Spoken Word Tour in Los Angeles and has read widely, from Bumbershoot, the Poetry Project and the New School to South by Southwest, Lollapalooza, all over Europe and on the BBC, just to name a few. Writer’s Digest named her one of ten poets to watch in the new millennium.

***“Reading Ellyn’s poems from the page is one thing but hearing her read them just the way she meant them to be heard is something else altogether. Ellyn has a great sense of humor and reads wonderfully. The musical accompaniment on the album is not mere background filler but a true collaborative effort between Ellyn and the musicians that really works. Ellyn is a very gifted writer and a true gem.†– Henry Rollins

***“I have started to write something about you for your site several times, and each time I am struck by my inability to describe what you do in terms beautiful enough, original enough to do you justice. But it’s always been this way. Who has ever been able to say in other words what a song says? Maybe it’s why I like your poems so much, they say what can only be said in exactly the way you say it. The best way of turning someone on to you is to play you for them.†– Jackson Browne
