Show from 9/17/09 Musically Speaking

Tonight’s show was entitled Musically Speaking, featuring spoken word arts with music, or people speaking with music and under, over and through music.
With a few exceptions, no one’s singing and sometimes there’s speaking with no music.
Some obvious choices like William Burroughs, Gil Scott-Heron and few items from Giorno Poetry Systems records and the like. I played several short tracks by globe-trotting avant garde guitarist/vocalist Craig Burk, who used to do a show opposite me on KBOO.
I have enough of this hybrid-spoken-word-music to fill up several shows, so will continue this next week.
