Atom Rush, an amazing Connecticut poet of my long acquaintance has been kicking around the NYC tri-state region with his own outlaw brand of jazz-infused poetry for the last twenty years. I first met him in the smoky college dorm rounds of South Jersey/Philly, where he was beating his poetry down the macadam streets to slam it in the literary dives of New Hope, Cherry Hill, and North Jersey/Montclair. He has since taken up his workshop with Mad Poet Productions, and recently performed at Punk Poetry Jazz! at ABC No Rio NYC.
