Grand Slam FINALS

The 2007 Grand Slam FINALS and 4th Anniversary coming up next week (April 5th). The Genie (scratch guitar virtuoso) will be in town and will round out the show as our musical feature. With DJ Qbert as one of his influences, this musical pioneer incorporates classical guitar, beat boxing, DJ scratching, live-sampling, and beat juggling all on one guitar to produce a live show that, quite simply, will blow your mind.
And don't forget that our super special feature for this show is Big Poppa E, a National Poetry Slam Champion who has appeared 3 times on HBO’s Def Poetry Jam. He has also been featured on BET, NPR, and CBS’s 60 Minutes. Furthermore, he has headlined at more than 200 showcases in 33 states (including more than 60 major universities), making him one of the most recognized names in the National Poetry Slam community.
Plus, we've got the 12 best poets from the 2006-2007 season fighting for their metaphoric lives in an all out, three-round elimination match to determine the members of the 2007 HawaiiSlam team. This will indeed be the most intense poetry slam of the entire year (if you remember last year's finals, you know what we're talking about). Tickets are $15.
