DenimSkin To Host Inaugural Buffalo Reading

DenimSkin, a burgeoning collective based in New York City, led by Michael Demyan and Buffalo native Brian VanRemmen, is hosting an inaugural Buffalo reading from their literary and art review on January 3rd at Sweet_ness 7 Café at 220 Grant Street from 6-9m. The reading is produced by Ian Belknap and the Bourbon & Coffee musical collective.

DenimSkin magazine has released two issues via Buffalo-based Hip Pocket Books. Collecting the work of literary and visual artists from near and far, DenimSkin provides a vehicle for underrepresented artists to create in defiance of conventional form and content for a fresh, wide-ranging voice in a clean, simple format. Many of the artists and writers in DenimSkin are Buffalo-based, including Damian Weber, Eric Gelsinger, Brian McMahon, Ian Belknap and Kevin Cooley.

The reading at Sweet_ness 7 will feature some of these Buffalo based writers, in addition to Eric P. Johnt and Carly Weiser. Starting at 6pm, we’ll have pastries and beverages available, music by Bourbon & Coffee, with readings beginning at 6:30pm.
DenimSkin invite you to check out our facebook page or website, for submission information, and upcoming events (including a reading in Somerville, MA on January 17).

DenimSkin is available for sale exclusively at Rust Belt books in Buffalo.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
