In the mood for some politically charged poetry? Then be sure to check out Tapped Out: Words on the Water Crisis at the Bowery Poetry Club (308 Bowery ) in NYC this Saturday.
The show - organized by BUST writer and Poetic People Power founder Tara Bracco - will premiere seven new commissioned poems about the water crisis - privatization of water, scarcity of the resource and the dangers facing fresh water.
The event will feature several of the city's best political poets including Bracco, Erica R DeLaRosa, Andy Emeritz, Frantz Jerome, Angela Kariotis, Dot Portella and Jonathon Walton.
Bracco founded Poetic People Power in 2003 to ''establish an ongoing project that combines poetry and activism.'' They've performed all over the city with more than 20 different poets, writing over 45 new commissioned poems.
The show starts at 7 on April 25 and is $10 - tickets are available at the door.
