The Gallery hosts its bi-weekly poetry slam but with a twist this time!
In an attempt to support local musicians, we have several treats.
1. Any poet who sings a snippet of a song in their poem will receive 0.5 points towards their score in the first round only.
2. We will be featuring Margaret Rose Medellin before the slam begins and during intermission to promote her Benefit Concert happening Friday, May 15th at the Gallery. All funds from the concert will go towards her tuition and travels to study abroad in Malaga, Spain this summer!!!
For more info, visit her event page:
3. After the slam, join the crowd at On The Rocks Tavern to see a band.... and that's all I can say about that.
