October 7th: D.A. "Da Butcha" Boucher 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 October 7th, we welcome the return of D.A. Boucher to Stone Soup's stage, with a special appearance by bassist Ethan Mackler.

Da Butcha rose from the ashes of, Art Fluff, Short Attention Span Poet, in the mid-nineties, born one Sunday night at the Poetry Jam, Lizard Lounge, Cambridge, Mass, the name coined by Jeff Robinson, from D. A. Boucher, who rose from the ashes of David Alan Boucher, who burned down in the mid-nineties during a vision quest for self.

Rebuilt using whatever parts were laying around at the time, Da Butcha, continues in the tradition begun by his predecessor, writing continuously about anything and everything, wholly addicted and consumed by Poetry, Da Butcha is Poetry Incarnate.  Da Butcha writes, writes, writey, writes, non-stop, anywhere, and he holds nothing sacred, attends the church of Sacred Nothingness, and will harpoon, lampoon, and take to the carpet any subject, from Politics to Life to Family to Sexuality to everything in between.

He began his egotistical attempt at the ever popular, 365/365 Poetry Challenge, after writing, 418 Pomes in 2012, and saying to himself, "huh, that was easy. I bet I could succeed at the, 365/365 Poetry Challenge", and ten months later, here he is, reading random selections from the project that continues his brand of irreverence and observation of the stupidities of life.

Da Butcha and Ethan Mackler have been bringing Poetry to life since 1997, when they met at Naked City, and have amazed and astounded audiences all over New England and New York City.

Ethan is an accomplished musician-multi-instrumentalist specializing in Bass Guitar and has performed with many bands over the years and accompanied Poets at Open Mics in Cambridge, Mass.

The two are known in underground circles as, Words and Music, the foundation blocks of high Culture, Da Butcha is called the King of Poetry and Ethan as Bass Master, and after tonight's reading you, the audience, will know why they are the best thing to happen to Poetry and Music since the ball point pen and ball strings.

Sit back, relax, listen, and enjoy the Poetic and Musical Styling of Da Butcha and Ethan Mackler, some times referred to as, Da Butcha 'shoppe...but, not tonight.
