Description : From the creators of the annual, sell-out ILL LIST Poetry Slam comes the hottest spoken word event of the summer: The CHILL LIST.

The Chill List will feature four of the best poetry slam *teams* in the country competing for a $2000 prize. Poetry slam teams are comprised of the top-ranked poets in a particular city who have competed and won their respective slams. As a team, poets choose to compete in pairs or as a full ensemble of up to five voices through four rounds of performance poetry. So imagine what you've seen at the ILL LIST and multiply that by 2, 3, 4 or 5 poets on stage performing at once! Randomly selected judges from the audience will award points to teams based on the strength of their poems and the quality of their performance. Audience participation remains essential. Laughter, tears, snaps, applause, and inspiration are sure to be had by all who attend this world-class literary battle royale!

This is a Free Speech event.

Doors at 6:30; Show at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets: $25
