Oakland Poetry Slam Finals tonight.

I'll be there with some other folk rooting for my spouse-to-be conditionbronze and the other poets as they compete for Team Oakland 2010--and enjoying a feature by special guest Sonya Reneé Taylor. Come on by.

The Projectile Poetry Project proudly presents the 11th Annual Oakland Poetry Slam FINALS on Thursday April 29th, 2010. This year's team will be hand picked BY YOU the audience at the East Bay's freshest venue The New Parish in Oakland's bustling Uptown. Slam Selecta DJ MR. G will scour the crates for the perfect aural accent while everyone's favorite hostess, that dynamic diva Nazelah Jeffries, keeps the crowd clapping, the show moving and everyone laughing.

We also have an extra special treat for you; On top of the amazingly talented poets competing for a spot on this years team we have '04 Individual Champ / HBO Def Poet Sonya Renee!
