TONIGHT: Climing PoeTree, Asia Rainey at Resurrection After Exoneration

Event: May 01, 2012

Tonight, August 1, at 7:30 p.m., genre-bending Brooklyn-based poets and performers Climbing PoeTree will present Hurricane Season: The Hidden Messages in the Water, a multimedia exhibition inspired (induced?) by Hurricane Katrina and other unnatural disasters. The performance will take place at Resurrection After Exoneration (1212 St. Bernard Ave.). Admission is $6 – $20, on a sliding scale. See the event Facebook page for more details.

New Orleans native Asia Rainey will open up the night with a poetry performance. A veteran of the local spoken word scene, Rainey is widely known in certain circles, but perhaps might be best known to the broader public for her genius, no-nonsense condemnation of junk food in a 2009 commercial for the Louisiana Public Health Institute.
