3400 Phinney Ave n
Artists: Slam Poet Landon Longhill, old time band Boyz 2 Dinosaurs (formerly known as Tonic), and folk harpist/songstress Shawnmarie Stanton.
Landon Longhill is a seasoned poet whose art has always been more of a bodily function than an endeavor, a rough channeling of emotional accidents into a new living thing, a force that points at life and then slaps him in the face.  Boyz 2 Dinosaurs creates a clever mix of bluegrass, folk, and old time tunes featuring Ben on banjo, Alex on accordion, and Simon on strings.  Shawnmarie and her trusty folk harp bring you pure, lyrical songs about life, love & the pursuit of happiness or something like it.  Chocolate samples and delicious sipping chocolate will be available at the event.  Poetry 7:30-8pm.
