And we’re back… well, sort of. We’re at least moseying our way toward the holiday finish line. Not quite ready to let go of it just yet, but so, so over it at the same time. And since you’ve just got to be exhausted from all of it, we’ve done the heavy lifting in answering the most important question of the year: What are we doing for New Year’s Eve?
In case you couldn’t tell from all those “best of” lists, 2014 is just about dunzo, which means it’s time to clear New Year’s Day for the St. Mark’s Poetry Project’s annual marathon reading. Now entering its 41st year, the self-described “untamed gathering of the heart’s secret, wild nobility” has lured the likes of Eric Bogosian, William S. Burroughs, Spalding Gray, John Cage, Yoko Ono, Amiri Baraka, Jim Carroll, Kathy Acker, Allen Ginsberg, Patti Smith, and Suzanne Vega (who, by the way, did a song with Dev Hynes at Baby’s All Right earlier this week).
