Many thanks to those who made it out to our 5th annual Poetry Night! It was a lovely evening with new and returning poets featuring: Lexy Nistico, Robert Milnes, Keith Johnston, Stella Milnes, Edie Nugent, Charlotte Nugent, Roberto C. Chavez, David Mitnowsky, Kat Chua AlmiraÃ±ez and Billy Conahan!
What a treat to close our evening out with David's original piece "Chase."
Goodbye from UV, for now...
Tonight some important news was announced. As of July 14, 2015 Unboxed Voices will be going on a 3 year hiatus. This news comes at the tail end of news that Kat Almiranez, founder of UV, will be going to graduate school. However, UV is thrilled to be handing off its monthly events at Think Coffee to Billy Conahan!
Billy is master wordsmith, spitting rhymes that rattle the mind and jar the soul. His lyrics are prolific and beats contagious. He is a regular performer at UV's monthly open mic and most recently rocked the house at UV's 5th Annual Variety Show at Parkside Lounge.
I hope that all UV supporters will continue to attend the monthly events at Think Coffee! Billy Conahan is going to electrify the East Village, you don't want to miss it!
Hello Billy Conahan...
Born and raised in Astoria, Queens, Billy Conahan is always quick to express his love for his city. Having invested his time in cultivating the artistic scene that thrives in the neighborhood, Billy has a become a staple of it. His early route as a stand-up comedian brought him to some of the top comedy clubs in America, including The Comedy Store, the La Brea Improv, and Gotham in NYC. After five years, Billy abruptly quit to become a singer/songwriter. Following that brief endeavor, he turned his eye toward hip-hop.
At first backed by a live band of Astorians, the hobby quickly grew into a career....
Upcoming Events for 2015!!! at THINK Coffee at 1 Bleecker St. FREE to ALL!
