Join us as we kick off a new year of slam with a very special MAS Poetry party - featuring the one and only Princess McDowell, a Dallas titan who appeared at both the Women of the World Slam and the National Poetry Slam. Plus, special musical guest - The Superhumans (featuring Nick Fury, Epic and DJ Buddhafunk!)
Princess is a vibrant, powerful voice in the spoken word community recently featured on the La Palabra: The Word is a Woman website. She has an album of poetry entitled Not A Storybook <3, as well as a chapbook entitled faith move muscle. She describes her poetry as her life wrapped in metaphors. A woman in love with women, and people in general, Princess writes startlingly beautiful love poems and starkly realistic confessional poems, and you do not want to miss this chance to hear her bring those works to life!
Along with the usual open mic and a two round qualifying slam for anyone who wants to share their heart and their art and earn points towards qualifying for the city team at the same time, (everyone is welcome to this all ages, free speech event)
So come on out and join us as we kick 2014 off right with poetry, music and community!
