We are moving the JC Slam for ONE WEEK to Downtown Live at the infamous 143 Building on Christopher Columbus Drive. Downtown Live is the sister venue to our home Grassroots Community Space.
To have JC Slam at this legendary building is a real honor. 143 has housed the some of Jersey City's best art openings, dance partie...s, poetry readings, rock shows, workshops and performances this city has ever seen!
Downtown Live is convenient to get to being about a block away from the Grove Street PATH and it has plenty of evening parking with a parking lot next to the building which is FREE in the evening.
The JC Slam is the only PSI sanctioned and nationally recognized slam in North Jersey. That means the stakes are high because we are trying to find out who will represent Jersey City at the 2011 National Poetry Slam.
There is a brief OPEN-MIC before the slam that not only welcomes aspiring poets but MUSICIANS AND COMICS AS WELL.
Your host who is always full of surprises, Broken English!
