The opening poem & title song of my humble revolt: “Gentrified Minds”,a performance-piece about corporate friendly suburbanization of NYC, racism, the rise of the hipster, demise of folk art, the suburbanization of NYC, and erosion of a true counter-culture. Four years of rancor and frustration gave birth to this piece, which was a follow up to a spoken word recording “The NY Horror Vol.1 (What Happened to the Brother on the Block?) that was eventually published in the Nerve Lantern literary journal. This was my first live performance in over a decade and the debut of my short-lived poetry band, the Children of Warhol. Music was co-written by Bob Kuch, the guitarist. Video edited & Mixed by Isaiah Singer. This performance was directed by Nina Fleck for Downtown Urban Theater Festival, NYC, April 22, 2011.
