Hell Phone – Yannick Bindert

This Sunday, December 6th, Hell Phone is hosting an intimate night of literary reading and storytelling about Bushwick organized by Nomadic Press. The event is headlined by Modesto Flako Jimenez, a Bushwick poet and an actor. The line-up for the night includes Dallas Athent and Katarina Hybenova, both of Bushwick Daily family and a Bushwick artist Danielle De Jesus who was featured in the fall issue of Bushwick Notebook. This should be fun!
