Annual Anti-Valentine's Day Slam and Open Mic
Monday, February 13th
8:00pm - 11:00pm
"It’s that time of year again. Time for the women of DC to test their performance and poetic chops on the mothertongue stage. Poets should bring two poems of three minutes or less to be scored by random members of the audience (and a guest judge or two). Yes. There will be prizes! The only rule? No love poems."
"This is a very special show for mothertongue. We are entering a new chapter in our herstory, complete with new programming and a new venue (Stay tuned for future shows at Big Bear Café). After over a decade at the Black Cat, we’re bidding them a fond farewell. We’ll have an open mic between rounds for members of the mothertongue community to say thank you and show their love for the Black Cat. Whether you’re there to slam, to get on the open mic, or just cheer us on, come celebrate with us! E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for questions or to sign up to slam."
