Dead Poets Slam at the Anacostia Arts Center(featuring poetry by dead poets)
5:00pm - 8:00pm
Open Mic at 5:00pm, Slam at 6:00pm
All ages, Free, RSVP requested here
Split This Rock, The DC Youth Slam Team and The Beltway Poetry Slam proudly present the Dead Poets Slam. Instead of performing your own poetry, you must select a dead poet and perform their poems as they were written. There is still a 3 minute time limit. To sign up, select your dead poet and email SLAM@SplitThisRock.org with your selection and interest in slamming. We want a diversity of dead poets, so that not everybody is doing Poe all night. Food and drink available for purchase inside the Anacostia Arts Center at Nurish Cafe in the back.

"A decade since the last lusty notes stroked the irreverent, iconic Georgetown music hall, tales and echoes linger.... From murder to redemption, from jazz to rock and roll, from striptease to Kiss, from Mister T to misadventure ... the documentary, like The Bayou Foreigner made its club debut there.... The Bayou encompassed U2′s first American show, Bono and mates opening for the Slickee Boys; Billy Joel’s live cuts that shaped the album “Songs in the Attic”; Bruce Springsteen’s unexpected appearance during a Robbin Thompson concert, and so much more .... Kiss had the amps so juiced that areas of the city lost electricity." (From Metro Teleproductions website) Timber Pizza food truck from Union Kitchen will donate a % of sales to Friends of Harrison Recreation Center.
