WELCOME TO POETRY LP LIVE! On May 21st San Diego's badass independent publisher, Puna Press, hosted an insanely awesome beautiful rowdy poetic musical cool fun loud quiet eclectic event entitled Poetry LP. It was held out one of Puna's personal favorite spots: The Whistle Stop Bar in South Park, San Diego. The event served as a release party for the new poetry books by Anna Zappoli and Adam Greenfield. It was also the first time in a long time that all of Puna's writers were together in one place and each of them did a special reading, along with several other wildly talented San Diego poets and a musical performance by the groovy Dani Bell & the Tarantist. Hosted by Puna's own Ted Washington, Poetry LP was more than just an excuse (though we did indeed party hard), it was an occasion which brought together a real family of artists and writers to share one another's company, work...and a beer (or five). This Say Something, Anything special is a series of the captured recordings by Puna Press's writers from Poetry LP. So power through them all or listen to each one at your leisure, but either way join the drunken love-fest, as Ted says in his intro: "We're having the party now."
During the Poetry LP event Ted announced Kara Goldfarb's (Puna's editor and podcast host) departure to New York, though she still does work for the press remotely. Along with the announcement, kind words and the promise of a final martini. For Kara's bio: http://punapress.com/contributors/kara-goldfarb/
