November 10th: Kaeper Funkhauser Esq. Features

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 November 10th, we can thrill to another poet featuring at Stone Soup for the first time as we welcome regular to the open mike circuit Kaeper Funkhauser Esq.

Kaeper Funkhauser Esq. is a wordsmith with a special interest in cadence, literary device, nonsense and magic. He is not licensed to practice law, which is fine because he's a molecular and cell biologist, anyway. His work is influenced by a great diversity of sources including the beat poets, the magical realists, some of the more verbose/academic hip hop artists, his scientific vocabulary and a love for the surreal and absurd. Originally from Worcester, Kaeper currently lives and writes in Somerville. He is a regular at the Cantab Lounge Open Mic and has featured at the Lizard Lounge Poetry Jam. Kaeper has also performed at Emerson College, Bullfinch Yacht Club, Lillypad, Skybar, Middle East, All Asia Cafe, Java Hut and a number of house parties. He has yet to be published, but that's probably because he's never submitted anything to a journal.
