Hal Willner reading Ginsberg poetry at The Stone tonight with accompaniment by Philip Glass and Geri Allen
Acclaimed music producer Hal Willner will be at The Stone in NYC tonight for two readings of Alan Ginsberg poetry. The 8 PM performance features musical accompaniment by the one and only Philip Glass (last seen opening for Frank Ocean at ATP NY). The 10 PM reading features accompaniment from pianist Geri Allen. Tickets are $20.
The program will also feature works by William S. Burroughs and Gregory Corso in addition to Ginsberg. Glass and Willner have done this before at The Stone, back in February 2011 when Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson curated the venue for that month.
You can also hear the music of Philip Glass in NYC at the Morgan Library & Museum on 10/21.
In October, The Stone is being curated by Timba Harris.
