Erotic Poetry Festival
Sexy folk. Detroit’s statuesque chanteuse among the towering talent

Doom has hit the nail on the head. Kubat has committed conventional career suicide on plenty of occasions, and she’s still here. She stopped recording for years — because she wasn’t ready to record. She’ll do this her way or not at all. Besides, this city loves her, and she knows it. “I love my city and I really feel like my city loves me,” Kubat says. “In that sense, I know that I’ve got people who’ve got my back around me. Those people will check [the new record] out. Everything’s changed and it’s all digital. It’s hard to play bars with the kind of music that I do. I want to make my own spaces and maybe do something more innovative. I don’t know, but Detroit doesn’t forget so quickly.”
No, ma’am, it does not.
The 26th Erotic Poetry and Music Festival is on Saturday, Feb. 23, at the Corktown Tavern (1716 Michigan Ave., Detroit; 313-964-5103), with Audra Kubat, ChrissyChaoss, Olive Jus, Jimmy Doom, Blue Dogma poet Dena Luckett, Abida Blaze & Blazing Belly Dance, Tara Lazaroff, Scott Boman, Jason Peters, Victoria Frick, and Say Yes Ma’am.
