Bosso Poetry Company, the informal and intimate monthly reading series at Dusty's, northeast Minneapolis's greatest dive bar, celebrates its fifth anniversary this Thursday with a lineup that includes members who have been a part of the event since the beginning, plus a few guests. The happening typically offers a mix of poetry, spoken word, and music, and is an opportunity for creative types to try out new material and take risks. Starting off with an hour-long set by Bosso founder Keven Brixius and his band Rockthrow, the evening will include core members Lynette Reini-Grandell, Michael Hall, Lynn Gray, Dave Monson, Venus DeMars, Jeffrey Skemp, and Scott E Vetsch. Additionally, a number of special guests will also perform, such as poets Paula Cisewski, Kelly Green, Jen March, and Matt Mauch, plus musicians GST, Karen Townsend and her accordion, Jayanthi and Robin Kyle (Black Audience), and Dylan Baker.
