Puma Perl at the Parkside Lounge

The cutting edge in downtown culture in the late 1950s and early 1960s was created by the "beatniks." Some of these moments were relived more than fifty years later when the Parkside Lounge hosted Krebs & Apfel's Endless Party tonight featuring poetry by Puma Perl, pictured here. Puma read her poems passionately while accompanied intermittently by a saxophonist. They were followed by a rockabilly band, Krebs & the Maynard G's, who dressed and played like it was 1963 again.
