CR Avery

Caught an amazing show at CBC’s Glenn Gould Studio this past week; Cr Avery and the Legal Tender‘s show opened with Corin Raymond and The Sundowners (featuring the incredible David Baxter) celebratory lament for small town broken hearted mermaid dressed memories and moved into a beatbox blues showdown between CR and the crowd. Everybody won. Worth a check out..

Also, caught amazing documentary Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould last weekend, and would recommend that to anyone who doesn’t know anything about the man, and to anyone who does. It was beautiful and amazing.

In other notes, there are some great shows going on this week featuring incredible poetic talent; Jogi Siwettran at the Peace Pipe Poetry Series on Saturday, and at the Art Bar on Tuesday; Toronto Poetry Slam’s David Silverberg, Amanda Hibert, Krystle Mullin & Mike Smith opening for the Toronto Symphony Orchestra on Saturday; 2009 National Slam Champs The Recipe featuring at the $100 Slam on Sunday and many more coming up..check out the listings page at www.torontopoetryslam.com

Leave you with a good one:

Recipe for Happiness, Khaborovsk or Anyplace

One grand boulevard with trees
with one grand cafe in sun
with strong black coffee in very small cups.

One not necessarily very beautiful
man or woman who loves you.
One fine day.

~ Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Enjoy.
