There are some acty-fisted poets putting together a celebration/commiseration, probably at the Black Cat in DC on January 20th, 2005 for the Inauguration. We're calling it "Inaugurate This!"
The event will feature artists, activist/ non-profit tables, musicians, and poets, from across the country. Regardless of who gets elected, we're going to have some heavy-duty work to do.
I especially want to recruit Jared Paul, because of his brand of vitriol ( & won't he be in DC anyway?), but I'd like to get a list going of other interested poets/groups of poets & see what we can do.There's a pretty kick booty wish-list of poets/writers/musicians/freaks going at the moment. We aim for a great cross-section so we can all network, linking our communities and issues together.
I know everyone wants to get paid, me especially, but the non-profit MotherTongue is sponsoring the event &, well, you know how "non-profit" goes, but we'll see what we can do.

if you're going to be in DC anyway or if you're interested, or what have you.
