BALTIMORE – Smile, Hon, You're in Baltimore! contributors EARL CROWN, HECK and WILLIAM P. TANDY headline this month's installment of the "Town Square" reading series beginning at 4:00 p.m. this Sunday, October 17, 2010, at Minas Gallery, 815 W. 36th Street in Hampden. Sarah Jane Miller hosts the event, and an open mic for words and tunes will follow.
About the readers:
EARL CROWN was a resident of Baltimore for 34 years. Due to numerous assassination attempts and an ongoing feud with the Organized Crime Division of the Baltimore City Police Department, Mr. Crown decided to move into a fortified compound in Belize. He has agreed to make a brief appearance in Baltimore in order to read one of his compositions, and will be flying back to Belize immediately afterward.
HECK moved to Baltimore from Brooklyn New York in late 2004. He won "Best Dead-for-100-Years Elephant" from The Village Voice in 2003, and "Best Art" for his giant jazz hand at the AVAM Kinetic Sculpture Race in 2007 and considers himself a raconteur. He is currently the namesake "Darb" in "Darb TV" debuting in a few weeks at the Copy Cat Theater. HECK is more than willing to take a difficult stance on issues, for example he likes puppies way more than kittens. Especially zombie kittens.
Descended from Irish patriot J. Napper Tandy, WILLIAM P. TANDY loves potatoes, hates cabbage and takes his whiskey neat. He is editor, publisher and contributing writer for the critically-acclaimed Smile, Hon, You're in Baltimore!, a submission-based zine ostensibly devoted to life (and death) in Baltimore.
