San Diego Poetry SLam Tonight

Join us at Voz Alta tonight for the wildly popular San Diego. Boring coffee house poets cower at home while the slammers take the stage. This is the spot to hear new voices in San Diego - the last few events have brought many first time slammers into the finals. See it at 8:30 pm tonight - sign ups for poets begin at 8:00 pm.

Never slammed before? No problem - come by a little early and we'll explain the rules - get instant feedback on your work from the rambunctious audience. See you then.
