Poetry Scream Boiling Hot

Created and hosted by poet R. O’Donnell ” ®”  and featuring the super fine talents of  local artists Ben Bellows Lichty, Steve King, Rebbecca Rafuse, and Justin with Collin Cabe and Justin on drums, The Poetry Scream returned to the Boiler Room to an enthusiastic crowd.

® performed poetry from his alter ego The Kreep while Rebbecca Rafuse returned  to recite her poetry and song with an activist’s edge.  Local artist Steve King’s deep and haunting words reflected his 1960’s San Fransisco roots while Ben Bellows Lichty read from several diaries  that reminded the crowd that the Beat poet is alive and well in Port Townsend.   Justin accompanied ® and Ben on djembe and then hit the stage reciting  the “spoken word”.   This was indeed an eclectic run of stellar talent to rival any of the Slams of Chicago’s Green Mill’s fame.

The Poetry Scream, a fast-paced poetry reading whereby uncensored poets are unleashed at the podium, will continue every other Thursday of the month at The Boiler Room, 8pm sharp.  This is a free event.

Boiler Room is a non-profit all-ages venue for music, art, poetry, and theater.  A youth-run business, The Boiler Room fosters a culture of volunteers and celebrates community, growth, learning and empowerment of youth and the young-at-heart. We are located in the heart of a small Victorian seaport in the Pacific Northwest.
