Jared Paul - Midwest Fall Tour 2011  Reply with quote  

Jared Paul "OCCUPY EVERYTHING" Poetry Tour - Fall 2011

"Jared Paul is a stunning performer – staring audiences in the eyes and calling for conscious responses to injustice. His talent at sharing complex ideas through verse should not be missed." -The Eureka Times Standard

"Punk rap for the Dead Prez set. Jared Paul has some real flow mastery." -Vice Magazine

"Think Chuck D disguised as a 5"5 bike messenger..." -The Providence Phoenix

"Jared Paul is a firestorm of conviction and flow. In a world long on words and short on action, Jared delivers both." -Peter Young, nationally renowned animal rights organizer and advocate for social justice.

*I'm also in talks with a bunch of venues and schools around the country about combined poetry shows with myself, B. Dolan, Sole, and others. If you're interested in putting together a performance poetry show at your college or university, or you know someone who is, hit me up at JaredPaul@gmail.com or www.Facebook.com/JaredPaulPFA, and we'll start working on it. B won't be home till late Nov, but we're definitely looking to hit a bunch of Northeastern/Near Midwestern campuses this Winter!

Combined shows with B. Dolan and Sole!! Yes!!!!

*I don't think I've ever seen a B. Dolan spoken word set, that would be a treat for sure.

You should do an impromptu set for the Occupy Wall Street folks while you're in NYC, I'm sure they'd dig it.

Jared, you're a touring machine. FYI, Aliquippa was mentioned in that Sinbad movie Houseguest.

After seeing the PFA set ten days in a row this summer, I am eager to catch Jared's poetry again in NYC. The music has been so insanely dope that I've forgotten just how much of a super-fan I was before it.

FUNK YEAH. Can't wait.

Uh, was I smoking too much sXe weed, or did Jake post in here the other day?

hahah.

Thanks everybody! I'm going to do my best. I gotta tell ya honestly, though, at the moment, I'm feeling really fucking bitter.

The Providence action that I've been waiting the last decade for is going to happen just as I'm leaving on 3.5 week tour. I've been at 3-5 hour meetings for Occupy Providence everyday for the last 6 days. I've become part of a new family, a new community, we're doing great work, and I'm set to leave on Monday.

If I cancel the tour and stay, things are going to be financially very tight, and, I'm going to have to back out on nearly 20 different people in each city who have already gone to war for me to put these shows on.

If I go, I'm going to be on the road for Occupy Providence. We've had nearly 100 people for each of the last 3 meetings, and I've found a home in the Direct Action working group. It's going to be one of the biggest counter culture events my city has ever seen. My stomach is in knots.

I know that my problems are dogshit compared to the problems many people are facing around the state, country, and world, but damn, right now, this feels like a bitter, bitter meal.

Oooo you're in a tough spot Jared. Maybe you should pray on it? Heh

Anyway, sadly, the Sacramento movement dwindled drastically after the first day. I'm trying to get down there as much as possible while still maintaining my employment. :/

Also, I'd really like a White Medium Jared Paul "Fight The Tide" tee if you have any left. Let me know if you do and I'll put some money in your pocket.

PS: my phone got shut off, FYI.

See you, of course, in Iowa City. I have no idea what you mean by you are playing at the University or what a Flash Mob show is. Email for details I guess I will.

Occupy Iowa City, babehhhh!

Eric set it up.

Also, there have been some changes to the tour: I've chosen to withdraw from the Individual World Poetry Slam, and canceled Aliquippa & Pittsburgh in order to be home for the week of planning leading up to Occupy Providence's occupation of Burnside Park on October 15th and the 4 days after it:
