Getting There: A Poetry Show
Featuring Denzel Johnson-Green and Ian Lindsay
Signature Event Series
In honor of National Poetry Month, The [email protected] welcomes Denzel Johnson-Green and Ian Lindsay as they present “Getting There”. Join us as these two poets talk about life in St.Pete, strange observations, quarantine madness, and getting to the “good place”, a land where the pandemic is over and parties never end. “Getting there” is about getting to that Elysian place of safety and normalcy; of good food, good friends, and the intimacy everyone’s been missing. The poets will also be accompanied by Black Crow drummer/pianist “Chaunces”.
This show will happen LIVE in The [email protected]
for a small audience. Advance tickets are required, no at the door ticket sales will be offered. Guests are required to wear a mask and observe social distancing and other pandemic protocols while on Studio grounds.

He urges others to read independent journalism, think critically, and listen. (Traits he works on himself). Three totems he holds most dear are affordable whiskey, habanero peppers, and his dog, Akira.
