HM157 Is Taking A Break
Now – April 1, 2018

IMPORTANT: We are taking a break to reorganize and rejigger our space and process so there will be no events during this period. We ask that those seeking show dates during this period CEASE ALL SHOW REQUEST EMAILS as we simply WILL NOT BOOK ANYTHING DURING THIS BREAK. Charon Nogues, HM157’s key founder, manager, event programmer and all-around supergirl, recently moved back to her hometown of Detroit, leaving a hole the size of three or four full-time employees (yeah, she was a dynamo, to put it mildly). While we regret having to pause our programming, we feel it will be well worth it. We are using this time to get new workers and, hopefully, a few volunteers up to speed on the countless responsibilities Charon used to handle. We will also be making a number of much-needed improvements that we sincerely hope will make future events at HM157 even more wonderful for patrons, artists, employees, and volunteers alike. Thank you for your patience.

From NY, The Poetry Brothel Masquerade Tour at HM157

November 2, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 am
$40
  • This event has passed.

The Poetry Brothel is a unique and immersive poetry event that takes poetry outside classrooms and lecture halls and places it in the lush interiors of a bordello. The Poetry Brothel presents a rotating cast of both male and female poets as “whores,” each operating within a carefully crafted character, who impart their work in public readings, spontaneous eruptions of poetry, and most distinctly, as purveyors of private poetry readings on beds, chaise lounges and in private rooms. For a small fee, all of the “poetry whores” are available for these sequestered readings at any time during the event. Of course, any true brothel needs a good cover; The Poetry Brothel’s is an immersive cabaret, offering a full bar, musicians, burlesque dancers, painters, actors, and fortune-tellers, with newly integrated themes, performances and installations at each event.

According to the great Oscar Wilde, “Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.” That couldn’t be more true at The Poetry Brothel on our Masquerade Tour, where we promise to bring you more truth, beauty, hilarity, and intimacy than ever before. On November 2nd the featured entertainers include burlesque artists Olivia Bellafontaine & Miss Tosh, house band Shiri & The Shiribims, palm reader Crystal, tarot reader Joey Cannizarro, face and body painter Irina Sarnetskaya, palm reader and jewelry maker Holy Crow, a slew of poetry whores, and, of course, your hosts, The Madame, Mister Charley, and Tennessee Pink. This will surely be a celebration for the ages–bigger, better, truer, and weirder than ever!

Doors open at 8pm; show starts at 8:30pm. Themed costumes and/or evening wear are encouraged but not required. This event is 21+.
