Baldface Poetry and Badass Beats

Edwin Torres, poet and performer, premiers Live Nude Radio Theatre with an eclectic—perhaps even counter-intuitive—mix of baldface poetry and badass beats. Pairing Emily XYZ's repetitive, mantra-ic "possessed" piece with a punked-out Regina Spektor's Your Honor seems like a bold set to play for a premier, but after listening Edwin's other shows you'll realize the daring, absurd, and thought-provoking is what the Edwin's all about.

After Edwin's mix Edwin sits down with poet and spoken word artist Emily XYZ, for a short interview. Then Edwin and Sharon Mesmer release their first installment of What Is This Shit?
