This event will support poetry and poets and poems but, in the spirit of being an Anti-Slam, if you’d like to play a song, do an interpretive dance, tell a story, be a fabulous acrobat, or whatever you like, you are very welcome to do so.
What is an Anti-slam?
An anti-slam is an all inclusive art event that was created many years ago by artist and patron saint of the uncool Rev. Jen Miller in New York City’s Lower East Side. The Anti-slam welcomes all members of the artists community and supporters of artists. This is how it goes:
- You Sign up
- Three audience members volunteer to be judges (those judges give everyone who comes up to perform a 10)
-perform anything you like for 6 minutes or less (I will have a timer)
- You get three 10s from the judges and everyone has a great time!

This event is BYOB. $5 suggested donation. So come on by and check it out, see what all the buzz is about, read a poem, do a dance, sing a song have a jammin time!
Sign up is at 7 pm, starts at 7:30 pm
See you there!
