Event description

Description

Change is inevitable. Does HomeBase Poetry have your support?!?! HomeBase Poetry has a NEW HOME and we are celebrating with international poetry star Marc Marcel on Sunday November 18th. We are approaching 10 years of poetry excellence and that has not been an easy feat. Keeping an event classy, mature, yet low in cost for our attendees has definitely demanded some serious creativity. Venues increase prices, liquor licenses come into question, parking becomes unviable, & sometime they just outright reject having so many people of color in their establishment. Whatever the reasons, HomeBase Poetry continue to adjust and keep doing what we do best: provide a safe place for poetry, spoken word, expression, centered around the Arizona mature urban market.

Now its time to turn IT UP! We find ourselves in a beautiful hotel right by the airport so still centralized for all areas but without the congestion, free parking, including special HomeBase Poetry drink and dinner specials. Of course I am talking about the Airport Sheraton Hotel at 1600 S 52nd Street Tempe, on the border of Phoenix (right at Broadway and 52nd Street). And you will be happy to know that we will be able to do all of this WITHOUT RAISING OUR PRICES. $10 in advance and $15 at the door.

Of course we have all the things that makes us great: amazing music by DJ Showtime, hilarious and insightful hosting (if I do say so myself) by HB and Tomas, incredible poets from all over, phenomenal vendors, and the most important part-YOU!

Arizona, thank you for supporting HomeBase Poetry for almost 10 years. With your energy, encouragement and attendance we will continue to provide this community with the shot of culture and art that it deserves.


So don’t miss out, make plans now!

Doors open at 6pm and we start ON TIME at 7pm. Open Mic and performances from 7-10pm. Cost: $10 in advance and $15 at the door. FREE parking for all, no extra charges! Discount tickets available online.


Location: Airport Sheraton Hotel 1600 S. 52nd Street, Tempe AZ (Right on the border of Phoenix and Tempe)

FAQs
**How can I contact the organizer with any questions?** hb@homebasepoetry.com and 773-386-0319

**Do you have vendor space available?**
Yes, send an email to vendor@homebasepoetry.com for details.

**How do I sign up to perform?**
Arrive and put your name on the list. Everyone does 1 piece. Once the list is full the list will close. First come first serve. The closer you arrive to doors open (6pm) the better.

**Can I have music played for my performance?**
At HomeBase we don't play music for performers (singers, rappers, poets). We prefer live instrumentation and acapella performances. It cuts down on tech issues and wasted time figuring different mediums. We do, however, make an exception for 'dance/mime/etc' performances as they are few and far in between and pretty much impossible without musical tracks. Thanks for understanding and sorry for any inconvenience.

**Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?**
This is a very mature show so we ask for 18 and up.


**What can I bring into the event?**
Do not bring any alcohol, as it will be provided at the event, for purchase, along with food.
