We’re kicking off the new slam season! Join us for an open mic and poetry slam with a featured performance from the indomitable Toaster! Toaster is Mental Graffiti’s 2016 Grand Slam Champion and will represent Chicago at the Individual World Poetry Slam. This month’s slam is the FIRST slam to earn points toward competing for the 2017 Mental Graffiti Slam Team. All poets who slam earn points toward the chance to be part of next year’s team. For more info on how it works, see our notes.
Open Mic sign up begins at 7:30pm.
Show starts promptly at 8.
The show is a $5 donation. All profits support the Mental Graffiti poetry slam and allow us to send poets to national competitions. The show is 21+ and held at Cafe Mustache.
Mental Graffiti is a PSI-certified poetry slam that happens every 4th Monday at Cafe Mustache. A poetry slam is a competitive poetry event in which poets are scored based on content, performance, and originality.
