  1. In an obvious move marking a new low point in an already declining career, poet and sometimes-musician John S. Hall has released a new book with Soft Skull Press, entitled “Daily Negations,” and will be making two, no doubt poorly-attended, New York appearances.

    On Monday, October 16th, he will read with musical accompaniment from Dogbowl at St. Mark’s Poetry Project; poet Aaron Kiely will also read. On Thursday, November 9th, Hall will perform with musicians Dogbowl and Sasha Forte at the Bowery Poetry Club; poet Penny Rimbaud will also take the stage that night. Full details are below.

    The book is a response to vapid, feel-good self help books that offer platitudes in response to human suffering. “Daily Negations” features a negative thought for every day of the year, and is intended to be of no help whatsoever to anyone.  The performances, which will hopefully placate Hall’s publisher, promise to be spectacles of mediocrity.

    ABOUT JOHN S. HALL

    John S. Hall’s band King Missile was dropped from Atlantic Records in 1994, after having recorded 3 albums, two of which were not very successful at all. King Missile has made several independent records that are widely unknown, and toured the country several times to nearly empty nightclubs. This is John’s second book with Soft Skull, because he couldn’t get a better publisher after his first book. He lives (if you can call it that) in New York.

    King Missile is playing this fantastically rockin’ show on Thursday night — full details are here: http://www.deannazandt.com/kingmissile/
