NOV. 16th – DIRTY GERUND welcomes TAK MOGEL!

tak4Kate “Tak” Mogel is the President and Co-Chair of the Clark University Poetry Slam. She’s a Dirty Gerund Regular, well, one of our most recent regulars (having just turned 21 recently!!!) but is no stranger to the Worcester Poetry Scene, having qualified for the Worcester Youth Slam Team & Adult Slam Team Grand Slam Finals her first year performing in 2007. The following year, she performed with the Worcester Youth Slam Team and tore the stage apart in Washington DC with a scathing political poem employing South Park Character Voices! tak2

This sweet tattoo is binary code for “FREE” – now that’s some sexy nerdiness on her arm that you can admire this Monday Night! Whether she’s writing about computers, heritage, or Stalin’s Therapist, Tak’s got a fresh original, off-beat writing style that witty, modest and smart! Or should we say WIKID SMAHT! Tak’s re-established the tak3dormant Clark University Slam Scene and is working to bring spoken word back to campus in a big way! She’s into top hats, old door knobs, found objects, especially letters without names, purple eye liner, lemons, syntax and bad vegans.

 

BONUS!!!! DIRTY GERUND IS PROUD TO PRESENT THE “BAD POETRY I WROTE IN HIGH SCHOOL” CHALLENGE!!!

Unpack them boxes in the attic and re-visit them old dusty high school journals to bring us your saddest, goofiest, most awkward attempts at expressing yourself through words, from when you were emo’d out before they even called it EMO! We’re celebrating the return of the Worcester Youth Poetry Slam on November 20th! And want to bring ourselves back to them sad ole days when “this sucks” was all you needed to say to connect with your peers! Bring one of your worst & and we’ll have a judge (who promises not to wear earplugs) slap a score on it! Winner will receive a JOHN HUGHES DVD!!! “Bad Poetry I wrote in High School” Challenge will allow us to appreciate just how amazing a lot of the our young spoken word artists are and help raise money for the Worcester Youth Poetry Slam as they attempt to raise the bar on poetry in this town!!!

SNACKS !!!!! WILL BE PROVIDED BY PETER ERICKSON!!! WOOT!

TICKLEBOMB ORCHESTRA WILL ONCE AGAIN BE ON HAND TO TIE THE ROOM TOGETHER!!! OPEN MIC STARTS US OFF!!!!
