I learned about this event from FunCheapSF:
The Lit Slam: Page Meets Stage Poetry | SF
The Lit Slam is a monthly, live performance-based poetry anthology that tries to find find the best art at the intersection of page and stage, mixing local and national touring poets.
Every third Monday, editors are chosen at random from the audience before each show, and those editors decide which poets and poems will appear in Tandem, the annual publication created over the course of the season.
The Lit Slam
Every third Monday. Doors at 8pm, show at 8:30pm.
Viracocha, 998 Valencia St, SF
$5 when you mention FuncheapSF at the door. Otherwise, $10.
Sounds a little wacky, but it could be fun. The venue (Virococha) looks interesting as well if you are into things like old typewriters and such. If anyone has been to one of these lit slams, please let us know what they are like.
