March 23 Slam and Open Mic Featuring CB


As usual, we’ll be doing our thing with the open mic and slam. Sign ups for both begin at 7:30pm. Everybody welcome for a 5-minute spot on the open mic… poetry, music, bring it! This is our second-to-last slam. If you’re trying to qualify for the Grand Slam, get yourself over here! You can check where you are in the standings right now, but remember: the standings change with every slam. No spot is guaranteed.

And don’t forget about our feature, CB from Charlotte! CB is a multi-talented artist.  His poetry ranges from entertaining to enlightening to  downright jaw-dropping, as edgy and somewhat controversial pieces have become his trademark. A competitor in the 2009 Individual World Poetry Slam, his furious and yet fluid style has garnered much attention, yet he has been known to show a softer side as well. Musician, poet, producer, CB does it all and the indications are what we’ve seen is merely a sign of greater things to come. Catch more of him on his website. Here’s a little preview for you:

We’ll see you next Friday, March 23.
