This month we are thrilled to announce a feature reading from local favorite Adam Stone! Come join us for another exciting open mic in what’s coming to be known as our always surprising, inviting, and sex-positive series.

A little more about Adam, for the uninitiated:

Adam Stone has been involved in slam since he misread an academic schedule in 1998 and wandered into a poetry club by mistake. The club took a field trip to The Prodigal Sun in Hyannis, Mass. to watch a poetry slam. While not immediately hooked, it wasn’t long before he saw a Boston poet named Jack McCarthy, and decided he should go to Boston to check out the Boston Poetry Slam at the Cantab Lounge.

Since then, Adam has represented venues at the National Poetry Slam twelve times, most recently Lowell, Mass. in 2013. He was twice selected to represent the Lizard Lounge at the Individual World Poetry Slam, served as Cape Cod’s Spoken Word Poet Laureate from 2000-2005, and has won the Boston Poetry Slam’s Champion of Champions slam more times than anyone else since the inception of the series in 1993. He holds the venue title of Dirty Head-to-Head Haiku Champion, acquired on Erotic Poetry Night in 2012.

This show in our monthly Thursday LGBTQ series takes place at Fazenda Coffee Roasters, 3710 Washington St. in the Jamaica Plain area of Boston. An open mic begins at approximately 7:00 p.m. and the headliner follows the open mic. The show is all-ages and a $3 donation is requested.
