Tyler Smith was born and raised in Rochester, NY. His poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Interrupture, Jellyfish Magazine, and Yes, Poetry. Currently he lives in Somerville, MA, where he plays bass for the oft-defunct band Pistol Buckets.
Tyler has just completed his MFA in Boston and has enchanted the open mic crowd at the Cantab with his quirky imagery and surreal, deadpan sense of humor. He will feature during his last weeks in Boston before returning to New York.
This show in our weekly Wednesday series takes place at the Cantab Lounge, 738 Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge. Doors for the show open at 7:15. The open mic begins at 8:00 and the feature performs at approximately 10:00. The Champion of Champions poetry slam in the current 8×8 series will follow. (There is no open poetry slam tonight.) The show is 18+ (ID required) and the cover charge is $3.
