33 hour 24-hour Poetry Jook Joint

Mikaela endorses:
Speaking of what's going on this month, here's something totally cool happening at Outchyonda in Barelas April 13-16, inspired by a similar event from the National Poetry Slam in 2005 (having attended at various hours, I can report that wee morning hours are the best, kinda like Balloon Fiesta craziness of getting up in the dark and leaving your house for something wild):

929 4th St. SW

La Revolucion Poetica presents:
Anotha 33 Hour Poetry Jook Joint
From Friday, April 13 @ 9p til Sunday, April 16 @ 6am
Sundown to Sunup!!
Admission is $5

Calling All Poets and Lovers of Poetry!!! This loony event was inspired by the 2005 National Poetry Slam here in Albuquerque. We want to continue the tradition this year, expanding it as an annual fundraising event complete with 33 hours of spoken word sanelunacy.

During the continuous 3 hour thematic slots, poets and poet hosts may read/perform spoken word alone or in conjunction with dance, music and the like. Sometimes verbal, sometimes rhythmic and musical, this 33 hour poetry Jook Joint will take you where no poet has gone before.

Poetry groups are encouraged to bum rush a slot, come up with a theme, and perform/read at their own risk.

A few slots are still available: Call Virginia 385-5634.

Thanks goes out to Gene, who read my poem from the Harwood Anthology at 3 am.

How great is that?
