While we don't yet know the nature and depth of all the talent on hand at the late-announced salon, we'd stake at least five or more times the cost of admission that this should be an early treat for all you hellbound ghouls and boos. Argument one, poet Michelle Oakes is one of Houston's underexploited resources, her poems have the dazzle of flash fiction and the woozy afterglow of a good song, and if the wise owls at the Chamber of Commerce happen to see this, they'd be better off renting a few of her stanzas to serve as a new city slogan than whatever hot pr garbage they're currently leasing. Add to that the ever-engaging drones of Collin Hedrick, the new pop tones of Total Care, and the beatnik sculptures of artist Lindsea Varisco and you'd do well to bring a friend or two.
