Another one out of the ballpark: July 21 Lyrical Ambush

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

The heat was on and not just because of the humdity! Christylez Bacon and Slice D were sic — beatboxing, strumming, drumming and spittin rhymes. Sidewalk chalkers in da house – creating artistic delights. Lacy was shaking that booty and balancing the hoops. A young breaker threw down some moves. Johanna, Vicky and Joe provided additional rhythm — and of course poets. A personal highlight was Elizabeth Croydon but she was not alone — amazing creations spewed forth Chris, Jeff, Laurie, Lois Thundercloud, Damian, Dana (boobs!), Ronny, Gayle, Joyce Robinson Hall (FREE DC), Ted, Zaccai, Godson, JT, Mark, Lacy, Ilene, Jay and K-lo Flow (b-more in da house) all represented DC poetry magic. And the crowd….the shizzle bizzle.

Don’t miss August 18 — or next Lyrical Ambush — Mo will be the MC so you know it’s gonna be fun. We’ll announce the musical feature once we have it lined up!

Blessings and gratitude to all who came — physically and in spirit!
