Event Details

Wednesday Night Open Mic! A Busboys and  Poetry Event   For two hours audiences can expect a diverse chorus of voices and a vast array of professional spoken word performers, open mic rookies, musicians and a different host every week.


DBDwayne B aka the “Crochet Kingpin” is a homegrown DC native poet, activist, break-dancer, and fashion designer. Dwayne has been known to write a pretty good haiku in his day which has lead to him win the Best Haiku Award at the 2011 National Underground Spoken-Word Poetry Awards (NUSPA), and his work to increase HIV awareness through the spoken-word community garnered recognition from the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, BBCAmerica, the Discovery Channel, and the Washington Post. Ultimately his goal is to make the audience feel something, and he’s always met his goal! When not documenting his life through poetic meter, he can be found on the metro making scarves and hats, or singing karaoke.

 
Denice FrohmanDENICE FROHMAN is an award­winning poet, lyricist, and educator, whose multicultural upbringing inspires her to explore the intersections of race, gender, sexuality, and the “in­betweeness” that exists in us all. She is the 2013 Women of the World Poetry Slam Champion and a 2012 Leeway Transformation Award recipient.  Her work is featured in Philadelphia’s citywide “UnLitter Us” Campaign, and has appeared in literary magazines, such as The Apiary. She has performed and taught poetry across the country and internationally in arts venues, rallies, K­12 schools, colleges, conferences, and detention centers.
