Monday April 15! SAPLING rocks the Dirty Gerund! Plus! Cover Poem Challenge!

FEATURED ARTIST(S) – Central Mass based rock outfit SAPLING (photo credit @colemanrphotos) is pulling DOUBLE duty this Monday, as both our featured guests AND house band for the evening. These experimental post-punk, indie, art, rocksters are currently embarking on their first studio recordings sessions this summer and we’re raising some funds and ruckus to help get these songs on vinyl! Super friends of the Dirty Gerund RAINY MAPLE SUGAR CANDY, AMBER TORTERELLI AND JOHNNY SPAGHETTI CORDARO all play multiple instruments, have been playing stages throughout Massachusetts since 2016, and are taking names (on a mailing list of some sort we assume?). Bands they dig include Mclusky, Sebadoh, Mission of Burma, Shellac, Jesus Lizard, Minibeast, & Future of the Left. They’re about to be your favorite band, so check out some live tracks at and get hip!

BONUS RUCKUS: COVER POEM CHALLENGE – bring your favorite work by another author, sign up (we’ll take up to 6 performers) and deliver their lines like you wrote em! Best performance wins a drink on us (and maybe a selection from our library for you to use at the next cover challenge)!

Visual arts by @stikipictures! People, JOY POND needs a break, so we’re in an OFFICIAL RICE CAKE ALERT – someone write us on our facebook page to volunteer a snack this Monday, or else, you get the dreaded rice cake! Will this Monday finally bring us outside for our first patio show? Go sports team, I mean, go art outside team!
