Radio Recap for Monday, May 28

Whoa, happy Memorial Day, everyone! Our reading blew up just a little for the holiday… Or was it the fabulous double-bill of Omoizele Okoawo and James Caroline? Jme ran a super-popular workshop for a great group of open-hearted folks to open the night. Thanks to everyone who came to write and share! Our open mic was hosted by power-due Melissa Newman-Evans and Michael Monroe, and then our features took the stage. Oz shared a new and interesting selection of work, keeping all his slam standards under wraps in order to let his latest writing shine –especially some retelling of his favorite myths. Then James Caroline brought us a whole range of the sexy, sensual, and snarky in a hot-hot ending to a nearly-summer night!

Next week, on June 4: we’re proud to welcome our first musical feature to Radio! Come hang at 397 Somerville Ave., Union Square in Somerville, to see Jade Sylvan and Ruby Rose Fox! Jade will start the night with a 7pm workshop on formal poetry. Our open mic will begin at 8pm, and Jade performs her poetry at 9pm… Followed by Ruby Rose Fox’s old-fashioned sultry rock ‘n’ roll. Come enjoy the show and get inspired!
