I fall further and further behind. Here's a little catching up, less than a month late.
Several weeks ago - it was the eve of Thanksgiving - I went to Ronnie Norpel's Wednesday night Tract 187 Culture Klatch. I went specifically to hear Steve Dalachinsky, but I like Ronnie, too, and I wanted to see what she was doing.
The venue, Sasa's Lounge, is a narrow bar on Columbus Ave. between W. 105th and w. 106th Sts. The readings/performances were in the only open space, up front next to the door to the street, a dimly lit 100 square feet.
It wasn't the easiest place to take pictures: the distances; the lighting; the mostly unnecessary microphone; the people moving around. But you deal with what you've got and do the best you can.
The oddest moment was when the first performer stopped reading to play his eyebrows.
