FEATURING:           
 
The Outgoing Racine & Kenosha Poets Laureate

     Musicians       Good Evening (pictured above)
 
And a Special Open Mic!
 
THE RACINE & KENOSHA POET LAUREATES INITIATIVE was started 4 years ago to honor stand-out poets in the communities of Kenosha and Racine counties, as well as to promote literacy and the healing power of poetry throughout South East Wisconsin and beyond.  In 2010, ANGIE AKERwas selected to be Kenosha county’s first poet laureate; STEPHEN KALMAR II and DARIN ZIMPEL were selected to be the co-laureates of Racine county.  To celebrate the succesful laureateships of our first poetry representatives, all three laureates will read from their work for this event. Plus–we will be announcing the new Poets Laureate of Racine and Kenosha at this event.  BONK! is honored to host our outgoing Poets Laureate for this reading, as well as to have the chance to announce the incoming laureates at our 5 year anniversary event!
 
In 2011, GOOD EVENING gave one of the best performances BONK! has ever seen to one of the smallest audiences we’ve ever had.  We wanted to give Wisconsin another chance to see these outstanding Chicago musicians so BE SURE to catch their performance this time around.  To get a taste of their sounds, check out the video of their last BONK! performance here.
 
The OPEN MIC currently has no spots left.  Woot!  Get ready for Marco Jaimez, Nick Ravnikar, Manar Mohammad, Candice Nokes, Brent Mitchell, Justin Grimbol and many more.  Even a special guest appearance by….duh duh dunnnnn!!!!–NICK DEMSKE’S DAD (Dave)! 
Weird : )

See you at the birthday party : )
