What is The Mentally Distilled Poetry Slam you ask?
Well 7 individuals are setting out to change the West Michigan Preforming arts scene as we know it!
Rachel Gleason, G Foster II (A.k.a. Auto Pilot), Fable The Poet, Kelsey “Mayday Poetry“, Antonio “Tone” Taylor, KFG Poetry, and Greg Bliss will be making one of the cities first ever Poetry Slam’s.
Traditional Poetry Slams are competitions where 5 judges rate poets on a scale of 1-10.
There will be three rounds, and cuts will be made after each round.
The winner of this slam will not ONLY win $100, but also a chance to be on the Grand Rapids National Poetry Slam Team.
At the end of the “Season” the 5 artists scoring the highest will be chosen and announced as those making the “Team”.
EVERY Month there will also be a different Live Musical Guest Opening the Show!
Live Local Music,
A Local Venue,
All to help send local artists to national stages for National Notoriety.
(And with a time like 7-9pm, you can be involved, and you can still have a productive Monday!)
What more could you want?!
We hope to see you EVERY 4th Sunday of the month at Long Road Distillers.
Our First Show will be the 4th Sunday in February.
Whoever says poetry isn’t made for the weekend has never been to The Green Mill in Chicago, IL.
Let’s Make History!
