On the Northside, City of Asylum’s annual Jazz Poetry Concert is the place to be in September. But this year, poetry and jazz fans don’t have to travel to Sampsonia Way to catch the show. Anyone with a computer can watch and listen to “the jazz concert of the year” in Pittsburgh, to create an audience as diverse as City of Asylum itself. This year’s performers include Oliver Lake and Tarbaby, Sonia Sanchez, Khet Mar (Burma), Tommi Parkko (Finland), Israel Centeno (Venezuela), Alexandra Petrova (Russia) and Hind Shoufani (Palestine).
Check it out on September 10 at 7:30 p.m. at http://www.livestream.com/jazzpoetryconcert or better yet, see it live on the Northside!
