20th Year Birthday Celebration
The Jam before the Slam celebrates its 20th year with a special 2 hour presentation. Sundays line-up will include all our regular musicians jamming with a healthy list of what we like to call our All-Stars: poets and performers who have joined us in years past and really rock’d the mic. This will be a party as well as a performance. As always the event is free and generally kid friendly. Many former Art Compost & the Word Mechanic members will be joining us.
