Detroit's M.L. Liebler braves spring jackalope roundup for gig in Rock Springs

Detroit's M.L. Liebler
Wyoming's Jackalope
Our Detroit pal, M.L. Liebler, will be returning to Wyoming in March. His last stop in WYO was last June in Casper. In the spring of 2010, he served as one of the judges for the Wyoming Poetry Out Loud finals in Cheyenne. He was traveling with Peter Lewis whom some of you of a certain age will remember as one of the founding members of the psychedelic L.A. band Moby Grape. M.L. and Peter gave a concert at the Historic Atlas Theatre and also taught a songwriting workshop at the Laramie County Public Library. The workshop was especially memorable as it's the only time that I've actually written a song and then tried to sing it in front of an audience. No Grammy for me, I'm afraid.

Here's the info on M.L.'s visit:

On Friday, March 1, 7:00 p.m., spoken-word poet M. L. Liebler will perform with Grammy-winning Eminem producer and musician Steve King at Western Wyoming Rock Springs Community College in Rock Springs. Free & open to all. We've warned M.L. to watch out for the Jackalopes on the highways to the gig as it's roundup time. Contact Professor Rick Kempa at RKEMPA@wwcc.wy.edu or go to http://www.wwcc.cc.wy.us/
