Friday night, Joseph will be in town as part of "Play the Wall," a night of spoken word, poetry, music, and film with a distinctly punk rock bent. Joseph will likely talk about his rocky NYC youth, his time in the Cro-Mags and on tour with Bad Brains and Bloodclot!, and give some excerpts from his books, The Evolution of a Cromagnon and, his latest, Meat is for Pussies. There will also be a screening of Mas Alla Del No Futuro, a Colombian documentary that chronicles the late 80s punk movement that arose from the drug-fueled violence and gang warfare in the city of Medellin. To throw in a little flavor of South Florida, the Clap will perform with thought-provoking hip-hop act Secondhand Outfit, while P. Scott Cunningham and David Landsberger deliver poetry.
Catch "Play the Wall" starting at 9 p.m. at Cinema Paradiso, located at 503 SE 6th St. in Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $7. Call 954-525-3456, or visit fliff.com.
