Friday April 2nd

Steve Langan is the author of Meet Me at the Happy Bar (BlazeVOX, 2009), Notes on Exile and Other Poems, and Freezing. He lives in Omaha, Nebraska, and on Cliff Island, Maine, and he teaches in the University of Nebraska MFA in Writing program. Langan's poems are in recent issues of Drunken Boat, Fence, The Iowa Review, MAKE, Notre Dame Review and Zoland Poetry.

Free Rein is an improvisational unit playing dark ambient/drone music. Its members consist of Andrew Joron on theremin and waterphone; Brian Lucas on 6-string bass, tapes, and wordless vocals; and Joseph Noble on wind instruments and percussion.

Andrew Joron is the author of Trance Archive: New and Selected Poems (City Lights, 2010). After a decade and a half spent writing science-fiction poetry, culminating in his volume Science Fiction (Pantograph Press, 1992), Joron began to elaborate other forms of lyric speculation. This work has been collected in The Removes (Hard Press, 1999), Fathom (Black Square Editions, 2003), and The Sound Mirror (Flood Editions, 2008). The Cry at Zero, a selection of his prose poems and critical essays, was published by Counterpath Press in 2007. Joron is also the translator, from the German, of the Marxist-Utopian philosopher Ernst Bloch’s Literary Essays (Stanford University Press, 1998). He lives in Berkeley.
