bobBob Monahan’s artistic résumé includes producing a handful of poetry chapbooks, fronting two weirdo bands — Haus Meeting and Total Freedom Rock, launching Duluth’s premier record label — Chaperone Records, and performing naughty poetry as the spoken word artist Peter Pain. How naughty are his poems? Well, last year he was kicked off the stage at a certain strip club during a Homegrown performance. It’s a little unclear if the content of the poetry was the reason for the ejection or not, but either way it is more evidence Monahan is fulfilling his mission — “informing the modern world of what it really is to not just be alive, but to bealive.”
