July 1st – Gonzo Open Mic & Stu Esty

Standard

Music at the Poets’ Asylum, whut?! First the Asylum lets the patents take over – bring your strangest, weirdest, off-the-wall, wackiest poems for the open mic. Then Stu Esty, the musical king of Worcester & leader of the Roadkill Orchestra, will make that piano on the stage do work – with a music set. Dr. Gonzos Uncommon Condiments will be there with tasty samples & their world famous dry rub so you can stock up for your 4th of July cookout. Sure to be an amazing evening!

Doors at 6:30, show at 7p. Free and open to all ages. Donations accepted. Snacks! We’ll be at the WCUW Frontroom (910 Main Street, Worcester) – can’t wait to see you there!

Tonight! Bake-off & iWPS Qualifier!

Standard

Here’s your Quick Reminder Post – it’s time to bake some cupcakes!

 

Oh, Lord do we have a night planned. After our spectacular open mic (so excited!), and after we eat some yummy baked goods bake-sale style (bring your dollar bills for a cupcake of your choice!), we’ll be having another iWPS qualifier. The top two poets will have the opportunity to compete in September for a chance to represent the Poets’ Asylum at the International World Poetry Slam in Fayetteville, AK this October. Woot! Doors at 6:30, show at 7p. Free and open to all ages. Donations accepted. Snacks! We’ll be at the WCUW Frontroom (910 Main Street, Worcester) – can’t wait to see you there!
