About December 8…

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008

For those of you who came out last night — you know we had a packed house and quality poets spittin fire on the mic!

Our feature Sol y Sol, with Marguax, Danielle, Heather and Cyn hit us with a range of subjects; the impact of guns on young black men, the negative imagery of women, “doin it,” addiction and god’s puzzles.

They were joined by PhenomeJohn wanting to be picked, Damien, Sarah, Laurie, Chris’s connections, Jess, Robby callin out vessels of peace, Lacy, Anne’s reminder of the power of one, Amy, Marco, Sheila, Elizabeth with her “windiest poem in the bar”, Lance’s “patriarchal disorder”, Jonathan and Erin, who helped us make some positive changes to our constitution – we voted YES!

We also did some anti-consumerist carols to get folks warmed up for Friday, December 19 (see calendar for details).

Thanks to everyone who came out — I’ve gotten several messages of love and appreciation for you all! Thanks for helping create a FABULOUS night!

We’ll be back at Bossa 7pm on Monday, January 12 — You don’t want to miss it!!!
