WORDS was created by Rocky LaMontagne & Bobbito the Barber to give young up-and-coming poets & emcees the opportunity to showcase their work to an audience of their peers. This showcase and open mic has featured Company Flow, Canibus, Mos Def, M.C. Search, Willie Perdomo, Reg E. Gaines, Danny Hoch, Saul Williams, muMS the schemer, and Suheir Hammad, among others. The open mic gives artists a space where they can showcase and work on new material. It also gives new artists a chance to perform in front of an audience. WORDS! is hosted by WiseGuy & Gaston and is brought to you the third Saturday of every month. All open mic performances are with the live band and/or DJ.
