Dionne Brand reads at UBC

I'm off to Greene College in a couple of hours to see Dionne Brand read. I've never heard her read before, so I'm looking forward to it. I'll see if I can bootleg a tape for y'all.

UPDATE: I've decided to bail. The temperature's near freezing and the roads are damp, so it's not safe for motorcycling and it's too damn far for transit. For my liking.

It was pretty good - Brand read strong poems, and well. The most fun, though, was fun watching them wiggle around (well, mostly ignore) a question about what they thought of Elizabeth Alexander's performance yesterday.

I've seen Brand read a few times and they were strong, flawless readings. Beautiful, really.
