He is a former owner of The Cornelia Street Café, where his many literary and performance programs (1997-2015) created a home for both poets & audiences.
    KAREN HILDEBRAND Karen Hildebrand is the author of Crossing Pleasure Avenue (Indolent Books, 2018). Her work has appeared in many journals and was adapted for a play, “The Old In and Out,” produced in NYC by Three Rooms Press.
    JOHN MARCUS POWELL John Marcus Powell is poet who is also an actor. Born in Wales, he has lived in London, Paris, Rome, Algeria, and for the past twenty-five years in New York City. His career as an actor spans British Rep, British Soaps (as a doctor on ITV’s Emergency Ward 10), American Horror Movies (Metamorphosis—The Alien Factor, Escape From Safe Haven & Mob Queen), London’s West-End (Zigger-Zagger & Ian McKellan’s understudy in The Promise), Off-Broadway (The Comedians & Perfect Crime), and Off-Off-Broadway (Hedda Gabler & The Visit). He was directed by Harold Pinter in Robert Shaw’s The Man In The Glass Booth in London. Pinter encouraged his writing, and helped him get his short stories published in Joe McCrindle’s Transatlantic Review. He is the author of ‘Glorious Babe ( Exot Books 2014 ) ‘Veil On, Veil Off ‘ ( Exot Books 2018 ) and the chapbook, Loony Lover (Exot Books, 2012), and performs his poetry extensively in New York City. As a poet he tap-dances to the rhythms of verse and prose, boogies through transgression, jives with socialism, square-dances with queerness, and flirts with any anarchic poet he’s ever met—particularly Whitman, Shakespeare, Rimbaud, and Dickenson.

    Collective Collective are a nyc-based indie/neo-classic rock band with a jazz skew and a new single dropping day of show.

    Kid Bowery A pioneer in the practice of ayahuasca-based divination and LSD micro-dosing, DJ/musican Kid Bowery is a recent veteran of an infamous “somatic experiencing” study sponsored by Denmark’s Ministry of Health and Social Affairs. Kid Bowery credits the experience as having spurred on his breakthrough theory of Contra Ishcemic omni-Consciousness (CIoC). “No one got bored on the fjord!” says Bowery, in fond remembrance of the Christiania-based study’s participants who later enlisted his turntabling chops to help celebrate the study’s conclusion through a series of “Midnattsol Dans-in” (or midnight sun dance-in’s). Kid Bowery’s psych-heavy sets were the centerpiece to an event the Scandinavian press described as “an historic fortnight of sweaty transcendence.” He is currently at work on his first EP, a concept album that reckons with the mystery of colony collapse in the bee world and the role of altruistic suicide in their unexplained vanishing.

    Drug Couple Drug Couple is an anti-capitalist, pro-miscegenation musical duo comprised of Bex and Miles B. A. Robinson (MBAR). The pair met in November 2015, when MBAR was producing a record for Bex’s previous band, Rosebug, at “The CRC”: the Brooklyn studio where he has recorded bands like Chairlift, MGMT, and Public Access Television. They fell in love in with making music together. They also fell in love. Since then, they’ve been microdosing LSD, taking selfies, and recording a collection of songs about finding someone special to share the end of the world with—called Choose Your Own Apocalypse. Their influences include Yo La Tengo, Dinosaur Jr., and the musical partnership of Mutt Lange and Shania Twain

    Katmaz Katmaz is a Brooklyn based songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist who approaches music visually, bringing a cinematic quality to his sound. After moving around the midwest and touring with the alternative act, Debussi, he settled in New York City in 2014, and with the help of fellow producers Braden Blair, Savings, Matt Cody (SZA, Ro James) and artist Dylan Jones, founded WaveCave studios. In April of 2016, Katmaz gave a sample of his emotive, soulful strain of music with his first solo release "Nautical Things". Indie Shuffle called it "beautiful enough to put me into a stupor" and placed it in their "Best Folk of 2016." Katmaz is currently recording his next EP which mixes electronic and analog elements to develop a new, unique sound.

    *Every Red Door Sessions show is a benefit. Every benefit supports the resistance though direct donation to organizations that fight for reproductive rights and freedoms, arts/legal support for undocumented youth, and an end to climate change denial.
