Acknowledging the 'Ghost'

David Thomas, founder of the proto punk outfit Rocket From the Tombs, and experimental rockers Pere Ubu, will bring his spoken word performance of "Ghost Line Diary" to the Bowery Poetry Club (308 Bowery, between Bleecker and Houston) Wednesday evening at 10pm. The piece was originally written and performed at the 14th Genoa International Poetry Festival in Italy in 2008.

In a press release, Thomas explains, "'Ghost Line Diary' is the journal of a man who wakes to the realization that he has become a ghost. And being an awkward sunuvabitch he applies geometry to the questions of Who, What, Where, When and How."

The Ghost Line Diary LP, available at Hearpen, will feature eight tracks as well as a spoken word program recorded at Palazzo Ducale at the 14th Genoa International Poetry Festival. A video performance of "X", captured by Francesco Di Loreto, will also be included.
