Friday 3/21: HOME @ Hillyer Art Space

Hosted by Fred Joiner, curator and host of the American Poetry Museum's Intersections at the Honfleur Gallery and poet-in-residence at Busboys and
Poets, Shirlington.

Carolyn Malachi and her Revenge of the Smart Chicks movement have a cocky sound influenced by the likes of legendary jazz vocalist Sarah Vaughn, Nirvana, Lauryn Hill, John Mayer, Seal, and Sade. The Revenge of the Smart Chicks (ROTSC) CD, Malachi's first, was released in September of 2008. Cool in her stance, the new artist concedes that the revenge sought is a matter of internal reflection. "Defying the laws of conventional neo-soul and spoken-word, [ROTSC] ebbs and flows effortlessly", says DMain's Kimberly Williams of Malachi's debut project. The sequel is set to follow in March 2009. Receiving four stars for the first installment in the series from Kane Mag, Malachi advances her movement of smart chicks from the Baltimore spoken word scene with gusto. ROTSC: a Cocky Column recurs in Mic Life Magazine and the first of the quarterly ROTSC event series kicks off in the spring of 2009. Malachi manages to get the manliest men to use their palms as makeshift mirrors and microphones during live shows. For her next trick, she just might pull a rabbit (or your heart) out of your hat.

HOME is on every THIRD Friday of the month at Hillyer Art Space.
