October 29th: The Collective Celebrates Halloween

Stone Soup Poetry meets from 8-10 p.m. every Monday at the Out of The Blue Art Gallery (located on 106 Prospect Street in Cambridge) with an open mike sign-up at 7:30 p.m. On October 29th, Stone Soup presents a special Halloween performance with DA Boucher, aka "Da Butcha," and the poetry troupe known as the Collective.

From DA Boucher:

The Collective has been performing since 1994 when the Short Attention Span Poet put together a show for Stone Soup Poetry at TT the Bear’s Place in Cambridge, MA . The Collective line-up has included poets such as RAT, Jeff Taylor, Marc Goldfinger, Diana Saenz, the Spank Me Grrlz, and many others.

The founding charter members are poets, Da Butcha & C*A*T and bass player, Black Wednesday. The Collective has brought their brand of new American poetry to audiences from Maine to Rhode Island & Massachusetts to New York and all the New England states in between, except Vermont. The poets of the Collective pride themselves as being the most daring and cutting edge poets in poetry today, no subject is avoided or thought of as taboo, they have done sets with titles and subject matter such as, “Tales From the Sh*thouse”, poetry about crap, “Sewer Monsters”, nakedness, paint, rolling naked in paint on an American flag, & all sorts of political poetry that slams the U. S. political & war machine.

No other poetry performance troupe has taken the chances that the Collective has. Every time the Collective is on stage, they raise the bar for all poet performers and poets in general. They must be doing something right because they are the most talked about poets or troupe, good or bad, slammed or praised, everyone from Michael Brown to Lee Kidd and Jonathan Leavitt to Jeff Robinson have something to say about, the Collective. Come see THE Premier Poetry Performance Troupe that everyone’s talking about, the Collective.
