Word Fest week just keeps on going with two events on Friday night, April 19. Kicking off first is the annual Word Fest Open Mic at the UAG Gallery on Lark Street. Then at 9:00pm, just up Central Ave. at The Linda, Urban Guerilla Theatre is presenting “Skit Happens, Too.”
Urban Guerilla Theatre is a Poetry / Spoken Word / Performance group based in Albany,NY. The artists of UGT are dedicated to reviving, redefining, and revolutionizing spoken word. The group employs various styles of poetry, music, spoken word, and theatre to address life, love, relationships, and social issues. UGT hosts open mic readings and events in order to create an artistic space to house and develop artists and upcoming poets.
Here is a sneak peak of what to expect at this event from the Facebook event page:
