7/24 Support the Oakland Slam Team

Posted by novoscene on July 24, 2008

With only a few weeks to go til the National Poetry Slam, teams from all over the area have been fine tuning poems, sharpening their stage routines and getting their lyrical shit tight in the hopes of bringing another national title home to the Bay.  For the last few weeks they’ve been slamming n spitting and writing n fighting all over, and since poetry don’t come cheap these days (or more precisely the plane tickets, hotels and registration fees needed to travel to Milwaukee to perform said poetry) they’ve also been doing lots of fund raising.

And tonight’s Multi Voice Slam is another chance to support the cause.  Teams of two or more poets have adapted work to be performed by the multivoiced groups with usually hilarious/insightful results-two/three/four times the poetry in the same 3 minute time slot!  Tonight’s event is free but donations accepted and encouraged.  Help get our kids to the big dance.-kwan
