This weekend ZuZu's was filled with a variety of special events. Friday night we had KUNG FU POWER of Highland Park share a bit of rock n roll and self defense. Saturday night the Highland Park Pure Poetry Club shared a wonderful reading filled with haikus and poems involving the senses.
And Sunday afternoon WPC shared a wonderful show called "Sunday with Rumi". The Rare Tea Cellar concocted an amazing tea called the "Forbidden Orchid Ambrosia Oolong." ZuZu's fell in love with this new tea!!!!
Hexistential Graphics designed a special event posted which was stamped and dated by WPC alongside two shirts for the Rumi event.
Here is some info from WPC himself about the event:
"Appearing for the 3rd time at Madame Zuzu’s as WPC, Billy put on a 3 ½ hour show using poems by the Sufi poet Rumi as subtext for a continued exploration in modular synthesis.
Performed were: ‘Any Soul That Drank The Nectar,’ ‘All Through Eternity,’ 'I Was Dead,’ and ‘The Rubiyat Of Rumi.’
Also announced were plans to release a series of experimental recordings from 2007 (which will appear on a private press label sold through Zuzu’s), as well as the possibility of an extensive Siddhartha set offered for release later this year; in exclusive vinyl, collectors sets.http://www.poemhunter.com/mewlana-jalaluddin-rumi/"

This compositional practice was first developed by Pierre Schaeffer in the early 1940s.
