WARM THE MIC- Special performances by some special poets to get you pumped up!

For months now poets have competed in our poetry slams for the chance to compete in the GRAND SLAM. This event only happens once a year and will determine who gets to represent the Metro Valley Area as part of Team Black Pearl Poetry at the 2010 National Poetry Slam!!!

Open Mics are very cool, poetry slams are even better, and grand slams the best of them all! If you've never seen one, come out and watch your cities best battle it out for a slot on the team! Bring your loud voices and be ready to have some fun!

He is the reason alot of poets around the globe got into poetry in the first place.
Your featured poet for Thursday, April 1st is none other than TAALAM ACEY!!
This will not be a short feature, he will perform a full concert after the slam!

The price of admission for this event is higher than our usual, but well worth it.
Regular admission is $10.00
Student admission is $5.00

All the proceeds from the night go towards-
ASU SunDevil Poetry Slam Team (they leave for Boston to compete at collegiate nationals the following week)
Black Pearl Poetry National Slam Team

There will be a merch table to purchase TAALAM ACEY's merchandise, as well as other merchandise that evening, so plastic is nice but be sure to bring some cash or hit one of the nearby atm's!


It's Black Pearl Poetry's six month anniversary! We're still in diapers but we know how to shake it, so after everything is done, hang around with us and enjoy the music for a bit.

Last but not least, we are asking that if you only make it out once this year to a BlackPearlPoetry event, make this event the one you get out to!
It's a special night for us, and we want to make it a special night for you.

Don't come alone, bring friends, and start blasting the show on your pages and media outlets NOW! Taalam is only performing at BlackPearlPoetry and the grand slam is a once a year event, so come check it out!
