The Poetry Brothel can't stop getting FRENCH!
Mesdames et Messieurs, zut zut zut zut alors!
Mes chiots, mes chatons, mes hommes et les femmes de la lune, as those of you who follow The Poetry Brothel on Facebook know, The Madame and Tennessee Pink are in the midst of their very first European Tour! They have sadly departed Barcelona and Madame Taxi's own Prostibulo Poetico but will soon find themselves in Antwerp under the care of Madame Alizée Mistral and thePoëziebordeel!
Now, as most of you probably assumed, The Madame and Tennessee couldn't possibly have visited the European continent without paying a pilgrimage to The Poetry Brothel's spiritual capital. In all of the world only two cities form the halves of this heart and Paris, mes amis, is our left ventricle. The Poetry Brothel is starting a branch in Paris, loves, on Friday, November 14th at Le Pigalle! Admission is FREE for this first event. The show will feature master of ceremonies and poet extraordinaire, Tony Alberto Rigettini, France's burlesque queen, Louis De Ville. and a brand new batch of Parisian poetry whores, reading in French, English, German, Swiss, and who knows what other wonderful language of the night! Doors open at 8pm. Show starts at 9pm. After midnight, DJ ELO will get you dancing to his own special brand of electro swing. For further details, RSVP on Facebook.
Now NYC, don't think we have forgotten about you. The Madame and Tennessee are bringing back a whole bag of tricks for their tribute to the French New Wave, The Poetry Brothel: Nouvelle Vague! We will send you those details in the coming weeks. The Madame misses you lovelies deeply.
