Boston Performance Poet Maxwell Kessler Headlines Poetry Night

Happy New Year! This coming Wednesday the stage poet Maxwell Kessler will be performing his work at Bistro 33 as part of a West-Coast tour (he currently hails from Massachusetts). Will you join us January 6th for the first Poetry Night of the new year?

Performance poet Maxwell R. Kessler was born and raised in the Idaho wilderness, and he continues to draw strength and inspiration from the Rocky Mountains. An artist in multiple media, Kessler has performed in a heavy metal rock band, he has written and acted in locally-produced plays and films, and today video of many of his performed poems can be found online.

Kessler has been a member of two Emerson College Slam Teams (including the 2009 College Nationals Finalists) and a member of the 2009 Cantab Team, and he was awarded the title of Champion of Champions at the Boston Poetry Slam. In addition to performing his work throughout New England, he is the co-founder and coordinator of the Emerson Poetry Project, a weekly poetry reading at Emerson College. In 2009 Kessler was named “Emersonian of the Year.”

Maxwell Kessler will bring significant stage experience, energy and talent to the first Poetry Night of the new decade. We hope you will also bring yourself to this performance, and then stick around for the always surprising and diverse Open Mic.
