This past 1st Wednesday of October (aka 10.02.19) Mad Swirl once again whirled up our open mic madness! This time we did our thang at the historic Top Ten Records! HUGE GRATS to them for opening their arms to us Mad ones & shout out to all you mad poets, performers, artists and musicians who helped swirl us up some googily madness!
This month we revisited 2008’s Mad Swirl Blue Note Issue. It’s was hard to believe it has been 11 years since we released this collection and thought it due time to resurface this mad-tastic line-up!
In case you weren’t there back in 2008 (or need a refresher), here’s the Mad ones that contributed their poetic & musical gifts for this collaborative project:
Chris Curiel (trumpet)
Gerard Bendiks (skins)
Tamitha Curiel (vocals)
Cheyenne Gallion (played by BA)
Roderick Richardson (played by Carlos Salas)
Here’s a visual of who is who (HUGE grats to Rosie Lindsey for these mad snaps):
After the feature set, hosts Johnny O & MH Clay opened up the mic to invite all y’all to join in & share in the Mad Swirl’n festivities.
Susan M Duval
Brett “BA” Ardoin
Thanks to ALL WHO CAME to support the launch of our creative collaborative love-child & share in this googily, loving, laughing, lasting night of poetry and music!
May the madness swirl your way! ’til next 1st Wednesday…
P.S. In case you missed the LIVE feeds, your eye can spy on the Swirl’n scenes that was right here…
