March 18th – Spotlight by Stephen Meads, Youth Slam


Stephen Meads is a writer of things. His unmatched energy, incredible wit, and acrobatic performances made him an integral member of the Bay Area’s collaborative writing and performing ensembles from 2005-2011, and he annually serves as one of three judges for the National Poetry Slam’s legendary Nerd Slam. Stephen was a member of the Tourette’s Without Regrets 2011 slam team representing Oakland Ca, the Berkeley 2010 slam team, Oakland’s 2009 slam team, as well as San Francisco’s 08 and 05 team, which placed 6th in the world. Stephen is currently making his home in Portland, OR where he has taken on occasional hosting duties as part of the Portland Poetry Slam.

After our usual Open Mic and the spotlight feature, we’ll be celebrating Worcester’s youth – come on down to the Poet’s Asylum to send our Worcester Youth Team to the Louder Than a Bomb: Boston competition/showcase, coming right up. The youth will be strutting their stuff: Sarah & Liz can’t wait to hoot and holler and they hope you bring your voice down (to the show so that you can raise it up), too.

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