Pacific Standard Bar
82 Fourth Avenue
Brooklyn, NY
(between St. Marks and Bergen Streets)


Please join us for our next evening of Chin Music @ Pacific Standard. On November 19th, we are thrilled to feature three fine poets: Aaron Fagan, Stuart Greenhouse, and James Byrne. Other writers to be featured in Chin Music this season include Monica de la Torre, Alison Hawthorne Deming, Ian Douglas, and Aracelis Girmay.

Located on Fourth Avenue in downtown Brooklyn, near the Atlantic/Pacific subway hub, Pacific Standard is a literary bar serving up eighteen microbrews on tap and cask (including both West Coast and local breweries), fine wines and liquors, and tasty snacks like chips and salsa, and meat and cheese plates.


Aaron Fagan is the author of GARAGE, a debut collection of poems published by Salt in 2007. The critic Harold Bloom said: “Fagan’s first book is vivid and aesthetically disturbing work. His promise is considerable because his originality should prove to be decisive.” And Idra Novey said in a review in The Believer that "Fagan both considers the 'laws' of poetry and breaks them, a mix that has made for an excellent first book." Recent work has appeared, or is due to appear in, The American Poetry Review, Tuesday: An Art Project, and The Yale Review. He lives in the Bronx.

Stuart Greenhouse’s poems have appeared in journals such as Antioch Review, Chelsea, Fence, Paris Review, and Ploughshares. His chapbook, WHAT REMAINS, was chosen for a National Chapbook Fellowship and was published by the Poetry Society of America in December of 2005. A second chapbook, ALL ARCHITECTURE, was published in June of 2007 by End and Shelf Press.

James Byrne's second collection of poems, BLOOD/SUGAR, will be published in winter 2009 by Arc Publications. He is Editor of The Wolf, a poetry magazine he co-founded in 2002. In 2009 his NEW AND SELECTED POEMS: THE VANISHING HOUSE was published by Treci Trg (in a bilingual edition) in Belgrade. He is the co-editor of VOICE RECOGNITION: 21 POETS FOR THE 21ST CENTURY, published by Bloodaxe, and is co-editing PARIS AND OTHER POEMS by Hope Mirrlees (Fyfield Books 2011). Born in Buckinghamshire in 1977, he divides his time between New York City and London.
