6/17 Infinity's Kitchen Late Show

Saturday, June 17, 2017 | 8:30 PM

The Infinity’s Kitchen Late Show is a quarterly literary reading featuring the work of new and interesting writers from Baltimore and beyond. Each show includes discussions of the performers and their work, in a format that resembles a late night talk show. There may even be some fun gags thrown in, for good measure. This is not an open-mic event but submissions are open.

Infinity's Kitchen Late Show is kicking off the third year of a fun literary late show with two special guests, fun banter, and more at the 14 Karat Cabaret, at the Maryland Art Place.

With Special Guests…

Poet Summer Greer was born and raised in Bangkok Thailand before moving to Florida. He never much liked Florida, so he decided to move to Baltimore, which was at best a sideways advancement. However, he loves Baltimore. In his spare time, Summer takes photos and works a day job.

Jamie Perez was a co-director of the Baltimore publisher Narrow House and edited Rock Heals, an online weekly. His work has appeared in a variety of places online and off. His chapbook, “There Were Rivers Before There Were People” was published by Big Lucks in Spring 2016. The ensuing book tour serendipitously included a Prince tribute dance party. Previously when touring with Sweatpants (the band and the clothing), there was an unplanned pool party at a stop in Charlottesville. Jamie lives and believes in Baltimore. He is generally lucky.
