I'm playing a set at Porchfest Somerville tomorrow. If you're in the Boston area, come see!
I will be performing at Porchfest Somerville again this year. It'll be a full-length set featuring a mix of old tracks and new ones. Last year was a super intimate show. Come by and join for the encore! You can get a taste of my music here: http://soundcloud.com/glassEyeballs ...

like a lie/ you believed/ that I told/ 'cos I thought it was the truth at the time//
like the tide/ like the seas/ like a phone/ that I hung up back in 2009//
like a crime/ like a spree/ like a home/ underground where I used to reside//
like a vine/ like a tree/ like a ghost/ with the very same pupils and eyes//

Yo. I made a beat last night that sounds like a leftover Wu-Tang beat from the 90s.

Introduction
Marshall "Gripp" Gillson is a nerd by day and a poet/rapper by day also. He was born in Providence, RI and holds both a BS and an MS in Computer Science. He has been an active slam poet since 2008, representing four different venues in three different states in national competition. As the 2014 Providence Grand Slam champion, he placed 15th in the 2014 Individual World Poetry Slam. He is also the founder and editor of the independent literary magazine "The Misanthropy" and boasts recent publications in "Maps for Teeth", "Three Line Poetry", and the depression-themed anthology "Light as a Feather".

As a rapper, he has released five independent LPs, two mixtapes, several compilation albums, and a number of mythical creatures from captivity. In 2011, he officially founded glassEyeballs, an independent record label and publishing company. His fifth solo album, "Ansible", was released on January 21, 2014. In his spare time, he enjoys arguing, pontificating, and writing biographies in the third person.
