Poet/rapper/author/nice guy performs at COB

Idris Goodwin

Idris Goodwin has a new book—These Are the Breaks—and a newish album—Break Beat Poems—and both of them are mm mm good. Because he somehow lives in Chicago, Iowa and New Mexico, you never know when you’ll get to catch him, or what crazy project he’ll be popping up in next. BUT see him this Sunday at the Church of Beethoven. You like music, you like poetry and, unless you’ve never heard him, you like Idris Goodwin. Go! Then you’ll be part of the team that knows what’s up.

(Full disclosure: I once acted in a play that Goodwin wrote. And it was awesome.)

This is the program:

Igor Stravinsky: Elegy for Solo Viola

George Gershwin: Preludes for Clarinet and Piano

Maurice Ravel: Sonata for Violin and Piano
