City Slang: Ed Sanders and Rodriguez at Wayne State University



Legendary poet and founding member of the Fugs Ed Sanders will be performing at Wayne State University tonight (Wednesday, April 11), with Rodriguez The show is free, and it will be hosted by local poet M.L. Leibler.

This event will mark a rare Detroit appearance by Sanders, who will be performing at the Welcome Center on campus, on the corner of Woodward and Warren. It all starts at 7 p.m.

To get warmed up, check out this video which George Seedorff of the Detroit Blues Society sent over to us. It’s an episode of William F. Buckley’s Firing Line from 1968. It features Sanders, a clearly inebriated Jack Kerouac and clueless academic Lewis Yablonsky discussing hippies. Amazing stuff. The video can be viewed here.
