GPI Features at University of Maryland

Late on the night of Tuesday the 24th, a lyrical cell of Guerilla Poets, including Laurie, Sha, Jon, Bob, Hawah and Mo,  obliged the invitation to become the feature act at the new weekly 'Terpoets' open mic event on the University of Maryland Campus.

As the Guerilla's lurked and mingled in the crowd of 50 or so, they were dazzled by the talented student poets that took turns on the mic. When they were finally announced, the Guerilla's ambushed the crowd with a decentralized rendition of 'War on Terror' that allowed different poets to engage the audience from different parts of the room as they approached the mic.

The 'War-on-terror' helped set the mood as different Guerrillas took turns leading the audience on a rhythmic roller coaster that included high energy ukulele+rap pieces by Jon, harmonious rhymes and songs by Laurie and Sha as well as pensive pieces by Hawah.

The result was a well rounded performance that a number of students later described as inspiring. Conversations after the show were fulfilling as several students, and one parent who was also present, shared their perspectives and pledged a renewed dedication to their own artistic expression.

Terpoet open-mic events take place every Monday at 8pm in the basement lounge of Dorchester hall on the University of Maryland's main campus in College Park. Check it out.
