Event Description

Third Saturdays, ya'll. $3 Cover --> 21+

Bring a friend, buy a drink, and kick-it with your own poetic voice at the open mic, and/or just be an awesome, rapt, inspired, alive audience member! Never heard Spoken Word, or been floored by a Slam poet? This is a great way to discover this lively, sexy, personal, raw, stylish, and powerful art form. Don't like what you see/hear? Write & perform something better yourself!

7:00 Doors
8:00 Open Mic
9:00 FEATURE POETS Kevin Devaney & Tanya Rubins

KEVIN DEVANEY is a first year MFA student at Sarah Lawrence. He likes cooking, ultimate frisbee, and madcap adventures. Anguine, awake, apocalyptic, and avast are some of his favorite words beginning with the letter “A,” what are yours? Kevin is the founder of Best Damn Poetry Show, and the Sarah Lawrence Spoken Word Collective: the campus’ first weekly poetry open mic.

TANYA RUBINS is an utterly engaging performer who quietly caresses your throat with careless giggles, until you realize you've been perniciously garnered into an emotional choke hold. With her contageous delight, genuine affection, and playfully self-conscious style, Tanya dexterously discloses her revelations of the ridiculous and the profound, leaving audiences belly laughing one minute and stifling gasps and tears the next.

NOTE: Tanya is breaking taboo (and helping out due to a scheduling snafu) by both continuing to serve as our amazing and devoted MC while *simultaneously* performing as a Feature Poet this month! Whoa.
