RIP Santa Monica's Poetry Rodeo reading.

Last night, Eric Lawson and I were the final two featured poets at Ellyn Maybe's Poetry Rodeo reading at Pier 212 Cafe (the former Novel Cafe) on Main Street in Santa Monica.

Kudos to Ellyn (one of the nicest as well as most talented poets in the Southern California community) for having a weekly residency for her work, as well providing a spotlight for featured and open-mike poets.  Seems like it's been a bad summer for local readings with the cancellations of Michelle Angellini's Silverlake Living Room series and Encino's long-running Barnes and Noble reading with Ron Dvorkin (though Ron will relocate to the Borders in the Canoga Park/Woodland Hills area).

Here's a link to the page for Ellyn's RODEO FOR THE SHEEPISH spoken-word-with-music CD:
