November 24th: James McCoy 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 24th, Stone Soup welcomes open mike regular and YouTube mini-sensation James McCoy.

James McCoy tells stories with a heart as poems with a heartbeat.

His work, including "Don't Quit Your Day Job" -- the most viewed video on Chad Parenteau's FreakMachinePress YouTube website --has been described as "fascinating work, restoring poetry to its proper place as an aural pleasure ... He's fearless too, moving from the workaday to the mythical ..."

A regular at the open mikes in Cambridge, McCoy has been called "simply mesmerizing," "very moving!" and a "BUCL" (Brilliant Unemployable Catholic Loser).

Following the feature, McCoy will be selling his new chapbook, How to Punch Your Way Out Of a Paper Bag ($5.00 for crickets, $50.00 for ants).
