April 13: L.U.C.C.I., Features

Stone Soup Poetry meets from 8-10 p.m. every Monday at the Out of The Blue Art Gallery, now at its new location at 541 Massachusetts Avenue in Central Square Cambridge, Massachusetts with an open mike sign-up at 7:30 p.m. On April 13, we feature the return of performance poet L.U.C.C.I.

His name is L.U.C.C.I., which stands for Listening, Understanding, Caring, Considering, Inquiring. He is a Pactormedian (poet, actor, comedian). He is a Gothic, Hip-Hoppin', Hippie-Punk. He intends to make positive change while entertaining in the process. He is from Metro Detroit, MI, lived in Cleveland, TN, Cartersville, GA, Daytona Beach, FL and now Jamaica Plain in Boston MA. He has a heart for social justice, a fascination with characters and their stories, and a fulfilling feeling of helping somebody smile, laugh, cry, think differently or feel appreciated who may have needed it. He writes about himself and his experiences, he writes character pieces to impersonate whether the characters were created by him or not and he writes for those who sometimes may not have a voice. His work centers around a simple idea: PEACE N LOVE. He believes if there was more of this in the world, it would be a better place. He intends to help bring it closer to that place. It's not a cliché; it's a goal.

He has a CD entitled, "My Name Is L.U.C.C.I." with 15 poems for $3-$5.

He has been published in Oddball Magazine and featured on the shows The Minority Men and The Point Of Entry.

He helps support The Blue Rose Amazing WoMen Poetry Showcase, is part of A  Spoken Word Flash Mob, and had a role in the Elijah Starr film, "Supa Dupa".

He is the creator of the Facebook group, "A.W.E. - Art Without Ego", a group for local artists of all talents to have a place to display their art, promote their events, and support each other at their own will.

He has been featured at community events and venues such as Haley House, Stone Soup, GRAB THE MIC, R&B Poetry Slam, The Listening Party, ALL EYEZ ON ME POETRY, B.T.S. (Boston Talent Showcase), Quality & Soul, Lizard Lounge, Liquid Elements, It's Bigger Than Hip Hop Movement, Weirdstock 2011, One Hundred Thousand Poets For Change and more.
