In celebration of National Poetry Month The Museum of Modern Art presents Transform The World! Poetry Must Be Made by All! For a full hour, the galleries come alive with the sounds of spoken word, as poets read their own works and those of others. The poets, ranging from emerging to established, from conventional to experimental, demonstrate and celebrate the broad range of American poetry today amid great works of postwar modern art in the Museum’s collection.
The Bowery Poetry Club is changing. But is it closing? “No Way, Joe!” The BPC is growing up. And we BOWWOWs want to say:
We Go With The Club.
Our cadre of poets started with Bob Holman’s encouragement at a Bowery Poetry Club “Stakeholder’s Tea,” and for the past two years, we’ve been honored to put over 60 poets and 25 musicians on that famous stage.
If the Club’s growing up, we’re growing up, too. We’d like to formally put ourselves up for a spot at the NEW Bowery Poetry Club Duane Park in 2013.
In the meantime, we’re hard at work on the BOWWOW Book. Stay tuned.
Thursday, July 5th, we celebrated two years of The New New York Poetry with the best poets and musicians who’ve headlined BOWWOW. You found a rooftop for the fireworks, then come to the Club for the Firewords.
With: Special Guests. Special Prizes. Drink Specials.
$10 at the door. FREE for all past BOWWOW performers.

“Poets Tovah DiPrinzio, Noah Levin, Sarah Matthes, Bob Holman, and Katrina Cunningham performed their poetry at the Bowery Poetry Club on February 2nd, 2012. For the musical act of the night, Susanne Layton sang 40s French Jazz.
To quote the wisdom of Bob Holman, “I’m a writer–I can do no wrong.” With this as the official epitaph of BOWWOW February, the reading had a little bit of everything to offer. The profound poets pontificated on subject matter ranging from the disillusionment of young adulthood to a revelatory lysergic acid experience.”
You can catch BOWWOW live at the Bowery Poetry Club, first Thursdays of every month at 10 pm.
BOWWOW 15 celebrated beloved Adrienne Rich, April 5th, at the Bowery Poetry Club, with a wonderful lineup of poets, music from the amazing Azwan Badruzaman, and randomly-interspersed open mic moments from people like Robyn-with-a-Y from Boston.
