First Floor Walk-Up Presents Poetry and Prose

Four scheduled readers, 10 minutes each (No Open Mic):

Phil Gammage is a New York-based fiction writer and musician best known for his eight solo album releases. Twisting from railroad cars, burlesque houses, endless roads, and the folklore of 20th century America, Phil’s stories and songs draw inspiration from his life as a musician, historian, and fiction writer. “Beatniks, Broads, and Burlesque” is a reading from an ongoing short story collection Phil is writing.

Phillip Giambri aka “The Ancient Mariner” left home at eighteen and never looked back. He’s seen and done what others dream of or fear. That’s how he lives and that’s what he writes. His 2020 novelette The Amorous Adventures of Blondie and Boho is a story of love, survival, and gentrification in NYC’s East Village.”

Jonathan Berger used to read his little poems every Monday night at the Sidewalk Cafe until he couldn’t anymore and then he read his little poems every Monday night at Gran Torino until he couldn’t anymore and then he read his little poems at Bar Freda until he wouldn’t anymore and now he’s coming to this.

Linda Kleinbub is the curator of Fahrenheit Open Mic, founder of Pen Pal Poets & editor of Pink Trees Press. Linda was one of six local poets invited to read at the Americas Poetry Festival of New York 2021. Some of her work is found in The Best American Poetry, Brooklyn Rail, The Observer, and Sensitive Skin Magazine. Her first full-length book of poetry COVER CHARGE is an Unbearables Title from Autonomedia.

June 13 2012 024 CL Pick hitThe International Bar formerly THE COAL YARD  Corner of 1st Avenue & 6st. East Village NYC .The official Rubber Eden Bar is one that my Kid’s GF picked out for me on the lower east side one Fall. Must to check out the. No sound system (only a old juke box)  nice and dark, circular bar stocked with regulars, ill-regulars, beats, punks, hippies, left-overs, reheated souls and characters galore and aglow. Friendly bartenders, cheap beer (yea they have 3 buck High Life) and a killer court yard out back (as displayed here) to have a butt and talk in. Here’s a link for more info
