Derrick Brown: The Witty Poet Performs Two Shows Tonight

The renowned slam poet descends on Bend.

Posted By on Wed, Jul 21, 2010 at 5:35 PM

Derrick Brown, the Long Beach-based slam poet who's as funny as he is sharp with his words, is giving Bend two shows tonight.

Before becoming one of the most lauded touring poets you're likely to find, Brown was a paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne, making him probably the only ex-military performance artists you'll see this year. Brown is also well known in the music world, having toured with the Decemberists, Cold War Kids and Flaming Lips, just to name a few. His show incorporates music and sound effects, but rides mostly on Brown's personality.

Like most poets, Brown also writes stuff down on paper, and you can read that stuff in his latest book,

    It’s been a while since we’ve seen the talented (and now married) Matt & Kali in Bend Oregon… but that’s all going to change tonight at Silver Moon Tap Room! If you’ve missed past coverage of The Ascetic Junkies, well… you must have been hidden under a rock.
