Gabriel Kahane+Suzanne Vega


Tonight, Brooklyn and Queens Poets Laureate Tina Chang and Paolo Javier bring their pavement-pounding poems to Battery Park City to team up with folksy singer-songwriters Gabriel Kahane and Suzanne Vega. And while the former finds a poetic desperation in failed New York romances and Craigslist personals ads, the latter mines the quirks and nooks of dive bars and diners in the Village to elevate the mundane to the sublime.
