The Deer Pile's turning into Denver's stand-out salon, a cozy place where art and comedy and poetry mingle. Here no one's considered an outsider -- no matter how disenfranchised they might feel on the outside. It's the kind of place where an event like Baby Hair can catch hold. Billed as an open mike for women and queer writers to read, perform or otherwise present their work, the monthly event now hosts featured readers, too.
Poet Dee Galloway, who gets that honor at 8:30 p.m. tonight, October 8, says she likes to tailor her readings to the "energy of the audience"; given the intimate venue, expect Galloway to be at her best. Potential readers can sign up for a ten-to-fifteen-minute slot beginning at 7:30 p.m., and a $3 donation is requested at the door. Baby Hair continues at the Deer Pile on the second Tuesday of every month; visit the Facebook page to stay informed of future event details.
