Spoken Word Soirée 2 – An Eclectic Evening of Poetry & Music
April 27, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 11:30 pm
A curated, immersive experience, featuring the crème de la crème of Asheville poetic talent. Seriously, this lineup is beyond epic… don’t miss it!
*This is NOT a “poetry slam”… at all. This is a mystic linguistic supernova*
These individuals will blow your mind & open your heart. Eloquence, grace, raw passion, fiery truth, captivating expression – the essential epitomes of poetic prowess are ours to behold together.
Desired attire for the evening is fairly fancy, or fancy as f^(k.
(Strongly requested, deeply encouraged, though not “required”)
Our featured poets are veritable masters of the craft; some hold multiple national poetry awards, have taught at university level, & are sought after globally for their talent.
In addition, a dozen or so superb local poets will perform, including Zach Zachary, Truth-I Manifest, Alina Quu, Justin Blackburn, Aaron Birk & Black Willow Productions, & various other notables.
Enchanting hours of word magic will be split into several intermissions for revelry in the regal Altamont Theatre: dancing, socializing, savoring of hors d’oeuvres & luxurious libations.
The Gypsyswingers will provide the soundtrack to our soirèe, filling the Altamont’s award-winning listening room with juicy jazz vibrations.
$15 Presale $20 D.O.S. (as always, no one turned away).
We look forward to communing with you. Please spread the word!
