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.




Eric "E-Baby" Smith began writing and reciting poetry in July 2000 with 95.5 WPGC’s Thursday Night Love Talk & Poetry Café. Since then, he’s opened for R&B artists Musiq Soul Child, Me’shell N’degeOcello, and Heather Headley to name a few. He has featured his poetry, hosted poetry shows, and taught classes as a special guest instructor at over 200 colleges and universities across the US. E-Baby has competed in, and won, numerous poetry slams from Virginia to New York within his poetical career. In 2011, he was nominated for the Male Spokenword Performance Artist of the Year by The National Underground Spokenword Poetry Association (NUSPA) and has released two albums




Brent C. Green is a free verse novelist and spoken word poet from Bryan, Texas, who advocates radical thoughts and honest questions expressed in unconventional styles. He began his poetry career while still attending high school in 2009 at Mic Check Poetry in Central Texas. Since then he has become a staple of his scene and a member of the 2011 Mic Check youth slam team along with the 2012, 2015, and 2016 regional teams and is the organization’s current acting writing director. In 2014 he graduated with a creative writing degree from Texas A&M and will pursue an MFA in poetry at Brown University next fall. Brent is known for his earnestly hopeful view of love along with a pure notion of romance and marriage that is self-aware and never naïve. Whether touring alone or with orchestral accompaniment, you will find Brent with both of his punkrock-arms outstretched, his left a raised fist staring down injustice, and his right palm held as a warm offer to anyone who desires a loving heart and voice to speak for them. Brent has two published poetry chapbooks with a third forthcoming: Onus (2012), Protested Love (2015), and Honest Revolution (spring 2017).
