OUR FLOW IS HARD PRESENTS AN OCTOPUSSY EVENT FEATURING JENNY ZHANG AND ZACHARY SCHOMBURG
Dear gold strips. Dear pretty dents. Dear surprise plates.
Zachary Schomburg and Jenny Zhang, two poets that scribble on mountain backs and chins, are on a hearty America tour right now. They are stopping here in Minneapolis to swing their words open for us. Our Flow is Hard would like you to come hear them and feel your breath become tangled or dotted lines.
The reading will be at Harriet Brewing, 3036 Minnehaha Ave., a new and wonderous place in the Seward neighborhood where excellent Harriet microbrews grow into mouth art. Laura from Hymie’s Record Roadshow will also be in the house to cruise records in circles before and after the reading.Come join us for this special (21+! 21+!) event. We’ll play catch with our goosebumps! (Also: expect some kind of OFIH interactive surprise!)
