If you missed Black Cake’s first ever live reading, recording, & performance in Portland last month, consider this your after-dinner treat. This special bonus album, recorded live at the IPRC, features words & sounds by Black Cake alums Robert Duncan Gray, Lisa Ciccarello, Sara Woods, Emily Kendal Frey, & Zachary Schomburg. Shoutouts to everyone who came & listened to cross-genre performance on a Friday night, & for all our amazing readers (as well as those who couldn’t be there to read). Present & edible over at blackcake.org.

These recordings are amazing. I read some of my new Dear Hairless You poems. Everyone was so good.
