Speaking Of Noir at the New Hazlett Theater this Sat, June 18th!

Yo! What are you up to this coming weekend? Lots of great stuff is coming up and I know this place needs updated, but this Saturday, June 18th, at 8pm one of the coolest events of the summer is happening at the New Hazlett Theater (Allegheny Square East)! The Speaking Of arts series is hosting NOIR, a "night of mystery stories, dubstep/ballet/break dance fusion, soul and jazz, and the spoken word." From writer/creator Phinehas Hodges:
The evening features readings by National Book Award Winner Terrance Hayes, Paul Lee, and local legend K.C. Constantine alongside the music of Dreamjob and the dance choreography of Hannah Galvin and Randall Miller, along with a finale number choreographed by Evolve Productions.

‘Speaking of…’, founded in November 2010 as an event that showcased spoken word alongside fiction and poetry in a welcoming, open atmosphere at Amani Coffeehouse. is bringing the same motif to this event. Beyond the absurd talents of the writers and musicians and dancers, 'Speaking of...Noir' will also feature not one but two Cave Canem fellows, Laura Yes Yes and Mahogany Browne.
You can't not checkout this short, very cool video that portrays an awesome mood that sets the noir scene, directed by Phinehas' bro and local motionographer Samm Hodges:

Tickets can be purchased online at for $8, or $10 at the door. Also for all of you online socialites, check them out @speakingofpgh and/or at Facebook. This event is not to be missed!
