BONK! is a many-splendored thing, and so are your March performers:




Poet                        Ross Gay

Musician               Jordin Baas

Poet                        Adam Gottlieb


ROSS GAY is a kettlebell instructor and orchardist. His books are Against Which (CavanKerry, 2006), Bringing the Shovel Down (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2006), and Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2015). He’s a founding editor of the online sports magazine Some Call It Ballin’. He is working on his garden right now.
JORDIN BAAS brings a fresh clear-toned voice to songs of sadness, wistful hope, and wry social commentary, accompanied by languid acoustic guitar and raucous harmonica. Hailing from Milwaukee, she is currently attending music college and performing both solo and with a back up band. She has many other side projects including a Pop/Rock group called The Quiet Time, and an Electronic project called Novelty. Baas writes, records, and produces all of her material in her home ‘studio’. She enjoys longboards on the beach and can make a mean smoothie.
ADAM GOTTLIEB is a poet-emcee/teaching-artist/singer-songwriter/revolutionary from Chicago. As a teen, he was featured in the 2009 documentary film “Louder Than A Bomb,” about the world’s largest youth poetry slam festival by the same name. Since then, he has gone on to perform and teach widely throughout Chicago, the U.S., and even the world, working as a facilitator of safe spaces for creative expression, cultural community-building, and social activism.
