Monday Feb 25th! Boston Emcee MARQUIS FILTHY features! Plus Return of the “Prose Cuddle” Challenge!

FEATURED ARTIST: MARQUIS FILTHY, a 21 year old Boston rap artist, believes in creating authentic music that preserves the culture of hip hop and propels it into a direction that influences listeners to capture their passions. Shortly after high school, Filthy embarked on this journey to follow his passion for music, his “Plan A.” With Filthy at the lead, Plan A consists of creative individuals who share the same vision and values. Since releasing his debut project The Glo Up in October 2016, Marquis Filthy went on to launch two annual local annual concerts with Plan A and has also been nominated for 617Sessions Artist of the Year by the Boston Music Awards. Filthy is currently working on a new album to be released next year. Song Link: https://soundcloud.com/marquisfilthy/sins

BONUS RUCKUS: Return of the “PROSE CUDDLE” Challenge – No intricate rhyme schemes needed to compete in this battle. Unlike rap battles, this is a compliment challenge, where you elicit the most “awwwws” from the audience, instead of most “ohhhh!”s. Makes sense right? Well, it will. We’ll rock a few times rounds. Use your most vivid imagery and poetic artistry to make your opponent feel good. Winner of the bracket style tournament get’s a drink on us and that should make us all feel good!

MEAN SPIRIT is back as house band this Monday! Visual arts will be provided by @Jenny__ocean. Visual arts director KING OF THE WEIRD is working on a monthly zine for the Dirty Gerund. If you’ve got ideas, poem snippets, drink reviews, or fun stories about your time at the show, send along to us at TheDirtygerundPoetryShow@gmail.com. We’re also now on instagram, follow us!
