  • Happy New Year! Luis and the gang had a great time at the open mic at Bossa in January. Around six or seven different performers got up on the mic several times in front of a half-full house. Come see us again in February on the second Tuesday… Tuesday, Feb. 9th, 7-9 PM at Bossa, [...]

  • It was an intimate and nostalgic night at Bossa in December. Friends from the Dupont Circle days swung by to share some love and OPP. The open mic vets were swapping the mic, as a catalog of hits kept rolling out. Jessica tried to make the audience into a reggae band, and many giggles were [...]

  • We had a special November at Bossa, with guest hosts Margaux Delotte-Bennett and Michael Anthony Ingram warming the mic in between poets. They had a blast hosting the GPI open mic! There were ten people on the mic, and many who were on the mic for the first time in their lives. Some original pieces [...]

  • We had a great time in October at Bossa. With some new voices and veteran GPIents on the mic, we rocked it for audience members from the GPI good ole days and the DC Poetry Project meetup group. Here are some highlights: Zane became Walter White from Breaking Bad…no, clearly you don’t know who you’re [...]

  • Howdy GPI! Our friends at the DC Poetry Project have been coming out to our DC open mics this year and spreading the poetry love. We want to help spread the word about their weekly radio open mic, during which you can call in and share your work: The Power of Poetics: The DC Poetry [...]

  • On August 22nd, Jessica of the Guerrilla Poetry Insurgency facilitated a poetry workshop with Michael of the DC Poetry Project and their crew. The DC Poetry Project started making the GPI open mic their monthly meetup spot this year, and we are psyched to be collaborating with them. The workshop was attended by ten people [...]

  • We had another wonderful time at our open mic in August. We were so inspired by each other’s words and energy that we stuck around afterward at Bossa to listen and dance to Cheik Hamala’s band. Good times all around! Here are some highlights: Luis brought us the beginnings of his oil paintings…a melange so [...]

  • In July, we took the open mic upstairs at Bossa, as we’ve done in the past, and had an awesome time. It was a full house of new friends and old, listening to inspiring words that touched our souls. We also bid our friend Denise bon voyage, as she sets off for her home state, [...]

  • We had a another great night at Bossa in June. DC Poetry Project members joined us again and strutted their stuff. We also said bon voyage to one of our founding members, Shahid, who is moving to San Francisco. No doubt he’ll be back in DC for visits, and in the meantime he’ll be rockin’ [...]
