George Tsongas got to San Francisco in 1945 and his one-liners and short poems spoke through the beat scene to the present. He was a co-founder and editor of The San Francisco Oracle in the 60's, and continues to write regularly.

He recently broke his neck and is laid up in a rehab hospital, and his punker son, Mike, is putting on a benefit for him.

Check out some of his favorite poets: Gene Berson, Joie Cook and Diamond Dave Whitaker. Music by Steve "Crosscut" Ciskelai and friends, and Galen Tsongas.

$20 suggested donation, but all contributions will get admission.

when people
must trade
who they are
for
what
they are
