Max Blagg: 3 Nights In December

See the poet's next three gigs in NYC.

Max Blagg is much more than just an Oyster contributor — he wrote 'A Walk Through the Strand' for Oyster #103, remember? He's also a legendary beat poet, having moved to New York City in 1972 and being a staple of the arts scene ever since. He also helped make this famous GAP commercial, which we really rate. 

 
From writing for Interview, the New York Times, being shot by Nan Goldin and playing infamous clubs like Danceteria (see Nina Hagen's 'New York') the poet has not only managed to survive 70s New York, but he's still performing and telling the tale of the city. If you're in NYC, you can see him over the next three nights at the following spots. Lucky you!
