Poetry Voice, Part 23v
Do you like spoken word? Do you miss the days when the likes of Don McIver, Kenn Rodriguez and Damien Flores ruled Burque's poetry roost? We can't bring those halcyon days back, but we can urge you to check out a most excellent spoken word artist, Buddy Wakefield. He'll be performing at the Outpost Performance Space on Sunday, Dec. 1 at 7:30pm in a show that features a for real world champion spoken word artist. Wakefield is on his A Choir of Honest Killers World Tour and reads from his visceral, raw and intensely insouciant work. Readings by local wordsmiths begin the evening, so you can only hope for your (previously mentioned) heroes to make an appearance. Tickets for this all-ages slam cost $10 to $15, so go with the flow and let those poets know! (August March)
