Monday July 27th! SEVEN HILLS SLAM TEAM FEATURE & FUNDRAISING PARTY!
POETRY FEATURE: 2015 WORCESTER POETRY SLAM TEAM – The inaugural team representing the new SEVEN HILLS POETRY SLAM monthly reading and slam series, is trying to get to the 2015 National Poetry Slam, taking place in Oakland California from August 11th to 17th! ROBERT BLACKWELL GIBBS, ASHLEY WONDER, COLIN KILLICK, SARAH SAPIENZA and RUSHELLE FRAZIER will be competing against some of the best spoken word poets in the world over the course of this 5 day competition. They’ve been practising, writing, competing in regional slams and holding fund raisers to get the dough they need to travel. Come support the team! They will be performing, we’ll be passing the hat exclusively for them, we’ll be auctioning off a few high level prizes throughout the evening and we’ll even have a yard sale / bake sale starting a couple hours before the show if you wanna come early and throw some money their way! If you absolutely cannot make it this Monday, please make an on-line donation to their GOFUNDME page. They’re half way to their on-line goal, so let’s help them get to Cali!
BONUS RUCKUS: The ever popular, “WRESTLING PROMO or POEM?” Guess Challenge! Our friends at the Federation of Belligerent Writers are throwing a Ralph’s Party on Saturday August 1st, so to help promo their “Wet Hot Belligerent Summer Show”, they’re coming down to help us guess if the line we spoken came from a famous wrestler or a famous poet. We speak the line, you buzz in and guess. First to three gets a frosty one on us!
Guest visual artist is none other than FERNANDA PREIRA. MALT SCHLITZMAN is bringing a NON-DRURIAN FRUIT SNACK! Thank him for saving us all from a rice cake alert. House band RUCKUS added some trombone last week, let’s see what they adorn themselves with this week! SUPER THANKS TO VATIC KUUMBA from Providence for doing such an amazing job filling in, last LAST minute for our cancelled feature! Congrats to RAINY MAPLE SUGAR CANDY on defending her title against JOSEPH JAMES BELLAMY in only the second ever tie breaker round in Iron Poet History! YOSH & MIKEY will be rocking the best in burgers and beers as always! Remember, come down around 7pm and help the slam team out with their yard/bake sale before the show! Oakland or bust! Bring extra cash this week! You might get a crazy deal on a BOSE SOUND SYSTEM during one of our auctions!
