12/14 Sea of Dust Release @ Dobra Tea

Kevin Finn is known ’round here as one of Pittsburgh’s better singer-songwriters. But he’s also a well-regarded poet who’s just followed his chapbook Escape Wounds with the collection Sea of Dust (Six Gallery Press). Finn marks the book’s release tonight with a reading at newish Squirrel Hill hang-out Dobrá Tea. Also reading are visiting poet Arthur Seefahrt and locals Bernadette Ulsamer and Kris Collins.

Here’s what haiku master Don Wentworth said about the book:

Kevin Finn’s assured pacing, modulated lyricism, and percipient eye go straight to the heart of things, the big, deep, breaking heart of things. I know no other way to say it: Sea of Dust is a damned beautiful book by a poet of immense feeling and talent.

So there.

9/7 Kevin Finn @ Dobra Tea

A bit late with this, but here’s what Jack Rabid at The Big Takeover had to say about Kevin Finn‘s last album 2012.

Kevin played a great set on August 3 at The Rock Room with strange sound-generator Burnout Warcry. On the first Saturday in September, Kevin will play a solo set at this new (to me, they’ve been open since March) place in Squirrel Hill, Dobrá Tea. Choose from “over 100 teas & drinks from around the world” & steep yourself in Kevin’s meditative music.
