Another one out of the ballpark: July 21 Lyrical Ambush

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!

  2. Joyce Robinson Paul lent her voice to the mic, breaking out Twinkle Twinkle 51st Star. And Louise Thunderbird brought out poems that were in her collection for years, yet still so very timely and important.

    These two DC Statehood-Green Candidates were proud to play with the Guerrillas on fine evening of art!
