Pittsburgh Noir

I am absolutely in love with the poster art from ‘Speaking of…Noir’, which is happening June 18th at the New Hazlett Theater. It looks like a great evening of spoken word and music.

The official press release:

‘Speaking of…’, an arts series based onPittsburgh’s Northshore, is partnering with Akashic Books, publishers of the legendary ‘Noir’ series, to present a night of mystery stories, dubstep/ballet/break dance fusion, soul and jazz, and the spoken word: ‘Speaking of…Noir!’ June 18th at8:00 PM at the New Hazlett Theater.

The evening features the stories of National Book Award Winner Terrance Hayes, Paul Lee, and local legend K.C. Constantine alongside the music of Dreamjob and the dance choreography of Hannah Galvin and Randall Miller, along with a finale number choreographed by Evolve Productions.

‘Speaking of…’, founded in November 2010 as an event that showcased spoken word alongside fiction and poetry in a welcoming, open atmosphere at Amani Coffeehouse. is bringing the same motif to this event.

Beyond the absurd talents of the writers and musicians and dancers, ‘Speaking of…Noir’ will also feature not one but two Cave Canem fellows, Laura Yes Yes and Mahogany Browne.

Tickets for the June 18th event can be purchased online at speakingofpittsburgh.com for 8$, and willalso be available for 10$ at the door. Follow ‘Speaking of’ on Twitter @speakingofpgh and on Facebook (Speaking of…) or check out the website for more information and updates.
