Brudini & Chip – “From Darkness, Light”

Posted on 10 Feb 2018 in |

Join us for a journey through poetry and music with Brudini & Chip Martin’s innovative performance “From Darkness, Light” at Break’Art Mix on February 10th.

PLU Open Mic featuring Annie Woodward

Posted on 31 Mar 2015 in PLU Open Mic |

Music and magic and merriment. Round one of PLU’s open mic on April 2nd started with Ethan’s “If You Love Me” and his Ferryman “If you love me, close the door tenderly but with force” “Some things cannot be lived in books” Also appearing in round one were a faux-grumpy Ghosh and Ten Modern Tragedies. Charlotte regretted her penchant for astrophysicists, and read The Idea of the Lightening Bug and Be Kind to the Wolf (Games of Thrones spoiler???)

Jason played the sacrificial lamb with his translation of “Song of April” by Pierluigi Cappello, Steve read an excerpt from his novel A’dam Blues (and other colors), Bob was diagnosed with an Epic case of homosexuality and virgin Nick was quite simply, an absolute WINNER. Robert James, or Jones, or whatever his name was not, was immaculately well-dressed but had lost his Beauty, and Ralph (Amarillo) also lost his virginity that evening. Jevin was speeding, and Kehris’ body was a piece of art, while Quitterie crushed “mortality between [her] fingers”. Thomas told the story of a minute. 7.43, to be precise: a time which will forever hold a special place in our hearts. Donald brought the first half to a climactic end with...
