Jonathan Brown and Birds With Teeth


Date and Times:

All performances at Flying Monkey Art Center @ Lowe Mill, 2211 Seminole Drive Huntsville, AL..

Synopsis: A few years ago Jonathan switched focus from spoken word to Hip Hop. On stage he is a rhinoceros, trouncing about, on the page he’s an alchemist, transmuting vulnerability into a source of peace. He’s a prism splitting light in all directions. A tasty mix of Hip Hop and Punk Rock, he’s shared the stage with Milo, Sage Francis, Saul Williams, Sole Sadistik, Weerd Science, Bluebird, and Blueprint. Jonathan was a high school English teacher for eight years, and now he tours the country doing rocks shows. Opening for Jonathan is Birds With Teeth a blues-poetry-percussion trio that mixes music, spoken word, and improvisational elements into a soulful, passionate sound. The Birds With Teeth are Shawn Webster, Robert Daniel and Kimberly Casey.

Tickets: $10
