Second Friday Slam Nov. 11 featuring Moody Black

hillary

The second Friday slam, featuring the usual unpredictable insanity, is going down Nov. 11, at 8:00pm. Hear poems from members of the nationally-ranked Art Amok Poetry Slam Team or jump on the open mic and get your voice heard. Sign up for the open mic and the slam at the door. Musicians, poets, and non-traditional artists welcome on the open mic. Admission is $5 (free if you judge the slam). Slam is a competitive, good-spirited poetry reading, in which poets perform original work and are scored by randomly-chosen judges. Check out the “About us” for the rules of our slam.

See you there!

8:00pm

This month’s feature is poet and rapper Moody Black:

Moody Black is as Southern as fried butter at the state fair. He’s hails from Greenvile, South Carolina, where he is the Slammaster of the Upstate Poetry Slam. Fusing a blend of Hip-Hop, Soul, and Poetry, he delivers a unique rhythmic message in which each new listener finds common ground. He has been a performing artist since the age of twelve, and has become a prominent force on a multi-regional poetry scene through his enthusiastic live shows and strong work ethic. He’s appeared at the Southern Fried Poetry Slam as well as the National Poetry Slam, and was the 2010 Upstate Poetry Slam Grand Champion.
