Loca poet (and editor of The Post and Courier's "Preview") Marcus Amaker is releasing two albums on Valentine's day, and will have the CD release party on the following Monday, the 16th February.

He'll be performing along with some friends, Lindsay Holler, Nick Jenkins, Vikki Matsis, Laura Ball and Mariah Dodson. Or as Marcus puts it "Spoken word poetry + a band = sexy!".

The first album, "lady phoenix," is a collection of spoken word poetry with electronic music, whilst the second is an album of original songs that he recorded as a kid.

And there will be free champagne!
