Urban Guerilla Theatre, Albany Poets, and The Frequency North Reading Series are proud to be bringing slam back to Albany!
The Nitty Gritty Slam is back for Round Two tomorrow night at Valentines (17 New Scotland Ave., Albany). We had a great night of poetry and spoken word two weeks ago and we are ready to do it all again. We have not had a turn out like that for a poetry show at Valentines in years. The room was packed and some folks even had to sit on the floor for the last round between Tammy Lopez and Shannon Shoemaker.
Here is the info that we have on our Facebook event page:
