Unearthed Song & Poetry is an open mic series at home.stead bakery & cafe that happens every 3rd Wednesday of the month. Each month we feature a rising musician and poet and encourage any and all poets and musicians to sign up to share 2 pieces of their work. Doors open at 7:30pm and the show starts at 8pm. $4 cover at the door.
The featured poet for this month is Aaron Devine. Aaron Devine is an ESL instructor and lecturer at UMass Boston and the Writer in Residence at Boston Children's Hospital. He is the author of Wonder/Wander: 522 Days in Latin America and has recently been published by McSweeney's Internet Tendency and The Good Men Project. A Dorchester resident since 2010, Aaron co-created Write on the DOT, an award-winning Dorchester reading series and literary link between the neighborhood and UMass Boston. Write on the DOT has published 3 volumes of local writing and anticipates a fourth next spring (2018). Aaron and his fiancé Jackey love walking their dog, Rocco, to Moakley Park and Savin Hill. Aaron's favorite sandwich at home.stead is the Taj Mahal.
Our featured musician is Muhammad Seven. M7 is an Iranian-American singer/songwriter from Boston. His narrative lyricism pays as much homage to Hafiz and Saadi as it does to Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, with deeply personal and political statements nestled amongst metaphors and vivid specificity. You might also listen carefully for the unmistakable influence of ‘90’s era hip-hop.
Come on out for a night of sharing and inspiration!!!
