Monday Feb 12th! NATHALIE IRMER from CHICAGO! Plus! DEAD-END DATING GAME Bonus Ruckus!

POETRY FEATURE: NATHALIE IRMER is a poet from the Southside of Chicago whose art explores the intersections of her identities  and experiences as a queer, black woman. Believing in the power of voice and individual narrative to catalyze radical change, she has led youth workshops and open mics both in Chicago and Western MA. Nathalie is the 2017 Chicago Grand Slam Champion and has represented Chicago at the 2017 Individual World Poetry Slam, the 2017 Women of the World Poetry Slam, and at the 2017 National Poetry Slam. She was a member of the 2016 Northampton National Poetry Slam Team, as well. She is a certified knick-knack enthusiast, lowkey awkward, and watches slime videos in her spare time. Nathalie is currently on her first your — EVER– across New England and New York, and isn’t freaking out at all.

BONUS RUCKUS: The “DEAD END DATING GAME” is back! Clown Princess of the Gerund & No Fux Given award winner AMBER TORTORELLI is a great artist and excellent sport and has agreed to act as Bachelorette for the evneing. Amber’s filled out our questionnaire survey, and we’re gonna see what Gerunder has the poetic answers for an “un-likely” chance to win a date with Amber. Amber won’t know who’s answering the questions because we’re going to disguise the contestants by having proxy readers provide their responses. Let’s see if someone wins a date (all expenses paid trip to Wendy’s drive thru & Redbox) and see if we can avoid the dead-end date this Valentine’s Day Week. Believe in love? We kinda don’t, but we believe in loving the chase!

Join us for open mic, live band, visual arts and snacks this Monday! Bring your loveliest love poems, or your angstiest love lost poems. We promise to love them all, or love you for spending your Monday with us!
