November 7th: D.A. Boucher, aka "Da Butcha," Features
Stone Soup Poetry meets from 8-10 p.m. every Monday at the Out of The Blue Art Gallery at 106 Prospect Street with an open mike sign-up at 7:30 p.m. On November 7, we celebrate the long poetic life of D.A. "Da Butcha" Boucher.
Da Butcha entered the Cambridge Poetry Scene November 4, 1991 joining the fun of Stone Soup Poetry at T. T. the Bears Place. Through the ensuing twenty years, David Alan Boucher morphed into the Short Attention Span Poet, Art Fluff, then finally, Da Butcha, Short Attention Span King of Poetry.
Da Butcha's early sets were all of 30 seconds long & anything could happen during Butcha's set; his performance troupe, the Collective performed all over New England & has morphed as well, going from a bunch of Poets & Musicians, to Da Butcha & Ethan Mackler, who perform as, Da Butcha 'shoppe; Da Butcha also has an alternative set of musicians with whom he performs under the banner, Da Butcha & the Madcap Electric Jazz Band. Da Butcha has self published two chap books, Poetry Tales & Uncle Gay Dave, as well as numerous unpublished chap books, & one CD, with The Collective, Beyond the Page.
Da Butcha has written thousands of Poems, Stories, & Songs without music on subjects ranging from drug use to politics to queer & is known as the Poet who will write about a Taboo subject so that his peers don't have to. In short, Da Butcha is the best thing on stage since the Ramones & has proven time & again why he's the Short Attention Span King of Poetry, and he's humble, too.
