Event Details

Thursday 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.


Tonight's host is DJ TAO

DJ Tao (pronounced 'Dow') began as a philosophy major who loved to spin records during his free time. In his heart Tao never strayed far from college. He dreamed of returning to campus, not as a student, but as a performer. It was therefore a very exciting time when he first linked up with E-Baby, a fellow poet from the DMV. Tao and E-Baby joined their creative forces and formed a poetry duet called “The Pen & Paper”. Together they took their high-energy act to students across the country as part of Jus Wiggin's “All Star Poetry” tour. After years of experience and artistic development he stands as a well-seasoned writer and performer, ready to inspire lovers of poetry just as he was inspired so many years ago.



 Bronx Native with family roots in Jamaica, Jordan Simpson has been ranked the #1 youth poet in Texas. A featured TEDx speaker, the current Houston resident continues to work nation-wide as a workshop facilitator, Emcee, and social activist. Among a long list of college performances, Jordan has shared stages with The Blue Man Group and Civil Rights leader John Lewis. Currently attending Texas Southern University for Pharmacy School, Jordan prides himself on his poetry being used as an aid in his venture for identity and peace through writing as well as a tool for inspiration. Jordan has been featured in the Huffington Post, NPR, Houston Chronicle,  and the Houston Press. Jordan Simpson is a member of the 2016 Houston VIP poetry Slam team.

Expect the unexpected, but above all come with an open mind and ear. List opens at 8:30 PM.
