Nitty Gritty Slamming Tuesday at Valentines

Dain Brammage

Urban Guerilla Theatre, Albany Poets, and The Frequency North Reading Series are bringing slam poetry back to Albany again this coming Tuesday night, October 4, only at Valentines!

Our first two slams have featured great spoken word in front of a full and energetic audience and hopefully Tuesday will be no different. We have had two different winners so far with Tammy Lopez taking first place at the inaugural slam and Elizag coming out on top in slam number two. Who will take it all home this time?

Last time we were upstairs at Valentines, battling the bands playing downstairs. This week, the poetry takes over the place.

Here is the info that we have on our Facebook event page:
