SPARKLE is a queer friendly reading series held at Busboys and Poets at 5th and K (1025 5th St. NW). Hosted by Regie Cabico and Natalie E. Illum (a 2010 Split This Rock featured poet). Tomorrow, Wednesday, May 27th at 8pm, SPARKLE will feature the Baltimore Slam Master Chris August (www.slamocide.com) Chris is incredibly funny, deep, charming and ruthless at at the same time. It is a feature not to be missed. Admission is 3 dollars, and the reading will include an open mic.
SPARKLE is made possible by a grant from the DC Commission for the Arts & Humanities
and support from Sol Y Soul.
After SPARKLE, head over to the Black Cat to hear the young women from DC Youth Slam featured at Mothertongue. All ages are welcome, and admission is 8 dollars. Proceeds will help send the DC Youth Slam Team to Chicago to represent DC in the 12th Annual Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Slam Festival. The show, hosted by Danielle Evennou, starts at 9:00 p.m. and will include an open mic, too.
