So on thursday we were all there to witness the end of Hydrogen Jukebox. A great event put together by Brant Lyon that combined music with poetry. An event that always kept us wanting more. It sucks saying good byes to “could be’s” but sometimes that’s what you have to do to move on to the finer points of life. Hydro was on its way to becoming a great event and a may stay staple of the poetry scene. Kat George hosted and at the end she asked who would take over Hydrogen Jukebox and keep it going? Maybe because it’s still fresh in my heart but I don’t think I can see anyone hosting that series again, maybe if it’s under a different banner but it’s hard to not associate the Hydro with Brant and I think that is a good thing. The last performer of the night was a Mr. Karl Roulston who told me that Brant was the one who convinced him to start getting back into the poetry scene again and he said it has changed him for the better, something else great that Brant has done. He ended his performance with repeating “Brant Lyon” over and over again and then the crowd joined in and then the sky, the birds and then all our hopes and wonders and then of course the moon.
For those of you who don’t know check out the Hydrogen Jukebox CD called “Brain Ampin’”. This can be found on amazon.com
