March 25th: Lo Galluccio 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 March 25th, we welcome a feature by current finalist in the Cambridge Poet Populist race, Lo Galluccio.  
Lo Galluccio is a vocal artist, memoirist and poet whose roots lie in the Lower East Side of NYC, though she is a Cambridge native and a Harvard graduate. Lo has released three books in Boston, since returning in 2001: “Hot Rain,” a chapbook with illustrations put out by Ibbetson St. Press, “Sarasota VII” a prose-poem memoir published by Cervena Barva Press and “Terrible Baubles” a chapbook on Propaganda Press. Some of the poems in “Terrible Baubles” were set to music or made into songs for a CD released on Studio 234 records this past year, with piano by Eric Zinman and cello by Mobius artist Jane Wang. Lo has two other vocal CDs – “Being Visited” on the Knitting Factory label in NYC, and “Spell on You” self-released in Boston, an avante jazz and blues CD. Her CDs are available at www.cdbaby.com, on Itunes and Rhapsody and can be heard on Spotify.

Her written work is available at the Grolier bookstore. She is currently a finalist for the Poet Populist position in Cambridge and has a reading with Tom Yuill, the other finalist, at that delirium inducing dive bar, the Cantab, on April 3rd at 9 pm. Her websites are www.logalluccio.weebly.com and www.logalluccio.alalla.com.
