Monday, Jan 22nd! KFG from Grand Rapids MI! Plus IRON POET CHAMPIONSHIPS “Wonder vs. Lizzard!”

POETRY FEATURE: KFG is a potpourri of queerness hatched from the Great Lake State.  An award-winning poet and spoken word artist who has been featured on NPR, worked with youth programs across the country; co-organized the re-installation of Slam Poetry in Grand Rapids, & was on the first team to represent the team at the National Poetry Slam in over a decade in 2017. KFG goes by “they” because most days they feel more like a planet than just one person.  They are perhaps too passionate about ice cream & feel most alive dancing like they’ve got no bones. One half of the “Unpacking Poetry Tour,” first time performing in Worcester, so let’s.go.

BONUS RUCKUS: IRON POET CHAMPIONSHIP, “WONDER vs. LIZZARD”! It’s the first title defense for new champion ASHLEY WONDER, and what better way to test her defense skills than pairing her with plucky upstart challenger and “Ruckuteer of the Year” NARK LIZZARD! You know how this goes, 2 poets, 3 rounds, 3 judges judging on 3 criteria, 1 trophy and 1 diabolical secret ingredient from the chairman!

This Saturday, the show pre-party is happening at Worcester Worcshop Speakeasy! with food by EMILEE, and performances by NICHOLAS EARL DAVIS, SHANE HALL and more! We’ll have more live arts, music, open mic and a ricecake alert get at EMILEE to volunteer snacks or else!
