Tribute to Leonard Cohen!

Featuring Hydrogen Junkbox and Puma Perl

For the open mic, we are asking for people to perform Leonard Cohen lyrics or poems inspired by Leonard Cohen. No one will be turned away if they do not follow this theme


$3 suggested donation


HYDROGEN JUNKBOX is a performance collective of poets and music makers, currently made up of David Lawton, Aimee Herman and Eric Alter, looking to inspire and innovate by stirring music and poetry together into "poemusic" using toy instruments, found objects, and our human voices. Come see us at Aimee's book parties on May 10th at Bluestockings, and on Saturday afternoon May 18th at the Barnes & Noble Bookstore in East Brunswick NJ. Beat the cookie drum!


Puma Perl is a widely published poet and writer, as well as a performer and producer. She is the author of two chapbooks, Ruby True and Belinda and Her Friends, and two full-length poetry collections, knuckle tattoos, and Retrograde, (great weather for MEDIA ). A fifth, Birthdays Before and After, is due for release in 2019. She is the creator, curator, and producer of Puma Perl’s Pandemonium, which launched at the Bowery Electric in 2012 and brings spoken word together with rock and roll. As Puma Perl and Friends, she performs regularly with a group of excellent musicians. She’s received two honorable mentions and one first place award from the New York Press Association in recognition of her journalism and was the recipient of the 2016 Acker Award in the category of writing and lives and works on the Lower East.
