January 2008 – Beachhead Readings Bring Back The Venice West
A packed house at Sponto Gallery (aka: Venice West Coffee House), Dec. 15, turned out to support the Beachhead and hear readings by Collective and former Collective members.
The evening got started with a reading of Philomene Long poems by her twin sister, Pegarty Long. She also showed a video of Philomene reading America last year.
Long was followed by Erica Snowlake, Hillary Kaye, Jim Smith, Yolanda Miranda, Karl Abrams, Lynne Bronstein and Sherman Pearl.
After the reading, Eric Ahlberg and friends Phil Garaway, Freddie Ginn and Sam Clay cut loose with some great folk rock.
A video of the event should appear on Google Video shortly.
