Atom Rush has authored two books of poetry over the years. Obscene: Letters to Moe was published in 1994 and Trench Madness in 1999, both by Sunflower Press. He's been performing in the Danbury area and in New York for years, and now he's trying to create an event a bit more interesting than a typical poetry reading. He's calling it "A Happening" and its goal is to revive the excitement of the 1960s when there was more interaction between the performers and the audience, and intermingling with the poetry and different art forms, be it music, film or visual art. Check it out this Friday at Molten Java, and come prepared to be involved (there's also an open mic).
