Another reason Albuquerque is the best place to live….
Last night, Tree and I went to see the 2008 ABQ WOW Women’s Poetry Slam Championship at the awesome Outpost Performance Space. What an incredible evening of top local talent slamming their souls out. Winner Erin goes to Detroit in March to represent the Burque. I’m glad I wasn’t one of the judges. It was tough and ended up being a slam-off between Erin and organizer Tracey. It was a close contest and special mention should go to Liza who’s delivery was dead-on and Jazz who’s piece about the kids in the sand pit rocked –as well as her paean of being in love. You go grrrls.
If you ever thought going out to hear spoken word was for the snooze set, think again, this was the place to be last night! You can get on ABQ Slams mailing list so you don’t miss the next one.
