Everyone knows musicians and poets have the best style. Fall classes at the Old Town School of Folk Music start September 1, so if you're looking for an excuse to wear your Cobain-inspired Converse or Jagger-worthy tight pants, why don't you pick up a mic or guitar while you're at it? Speaking of dressing like an artist, slip into a beatnik black turtleneck and a pair of loafers to read a poem at Comfort Station's Napkin Poetry reading on September 9th. There's art, and then there's dressing for art. We recommend both at once. [Old Town School of Folk Music]
