May Final Friday features 2010 ABQ Slam Team

The when and and where of it all: May 28, 7 p.m. (sign-up at 6:30) at Winning Coffee Co., 111 Harvard SE (3 doors down from The Zone, across from UNM). Hosted by Jazz Cuffee. Music by DJ Smartiepants. Free ($5 donation requested).

Who and what: The newly minted 2010 ABQ SLAM TEAM (Hakim Bellamy, Christian Drake, Damien Flores, Jessica Lopez and Joe Romero) will be debuting some of their group work as well as performing solo poems. This is the also the CD/DVD release party for the "Live at the Outpost 2010" DVD and CD that captured the 2010 GRAND SLAM where the team was chosen. The CD is $10 and the DVD is $15, both for $20. Then we'll have another specialty slam - THE NEW STUFF SLAM, where poets will be performing all new work! This event is hosted by Jasmine "Jazz" Cuffee with music by DJ Smartiepants. Finally, there will be an extremely limited open mic, 5 minutes or 1 poem. 

Final Friday is sponsored by ABQSlams, Essential Elements, Winning Coffee Co., Warehouse 508 and Hasting's Books & Music.
