The Madtown Poetry Open Mic w/ featured reader, Bria Fey ServossBria Fey Servoss has been writing for herself since she was six years old, but has only acknowledged being a "writer" for a few years, especially after taking a poetry class lead by the incomparable Matthew Guenette, who informed her that she was, in fact, (and much to her happy surprise) already a fully-formed poet. Bria’s writing usually hovers around the interplay between women and men, and the ideas surrounding self-concept, although lately she’s also been drawn to nature and the weirdness of humanity. Currently she is in the process of working on an illustrated chapbook with her friend and amazing print artist, Lesley Numbers.

The Madtown Poetry Open Mic, hosted by Ron Czerwien at Mother Fool's Coffeehouse, welcomes all forms of poetry. Readers in the open mic are invited to read their original work for up to five minutes. Sign up starts at 7:30pm and the event begins at 8:00pm.

For over ten years Ron hosted poetry readings as well as an open mic at Avol's Bookstore in Madison. His poems have appeared both on-line and in print journals. His manuscript, "The Office of Uncomfortable Admissions," received an honorable mention in the Concrete Wolf Chapbook Contest. Ron serves on the board of The Council for Wisconsin Writers, and sells used and out-of-print books on-line under the name Avol's Books LLC. If you have questions about the open mic, call Ron at 608-255-4730, or email him at avols@chorus.net.

Ladyscissors! - $6"Madison band Ladyscissors covers a lot of giddy and playful pop territory..." - Tone Madison

"The [quartet] (Stephanie Rearick – drums and vocals; Lorrie Hurckes – guitar and vocals; Brent George – guitar; Anne Bull – bass and vocals) blend those late-Fifties-style vocal elements and early-Sixties instrumental references, protecting the ethos of the not-too-studied brand of rock musician that delivers it straight from the gut while spiking the punch with a dose of punk raunchiness. As the name might suggest, Ladyscissors keeps the music fun and the production decidedly real." - Local Sounds Magazine
