Dear New York City,
You are cordially invited to a Buffalo Readings’ newest reading series to be held in this the year of our mind Two-thousand-eleven, monthly on the third Friday and eight hours past noon at the legendary Gathering of The Tribes in New York’s Lower East Side.
Your practitioners will be NYC’s own Buffalo Poets. They’ll offer up their brand of mind-expanding poetry and Discordian prayers, with musical interludes and crappy prizes for ordinary feats.
Admission is $5 at the door. Poetry and/or performance implements are encouraged, and may be brought.
The Buffalo Readings are run by a gang of poets and artists who call themselves The Buffalo. Founded in New York City in response to the cookie-cutter poetry of the turn of the millennium. The three original members were heavily entrenched in publishing the literary/art zine Ripped, when they decided to hold a reading at Fat Cat Billiards & Jazz in early 2002.
Membership has grown, and the readings haven’t stopped. The Buffalo Poets have become infamous for their all night, improvisational, anything
