This unique performance slam pits various mediums against each other to compete for the audience favorite. Performers have six minutes to impress the judges, who are comprised of five audience members chosen at random.

Competing this month are featured performers, Ian Belknap (host of Write Club), Gage Wallace (founding member of Red Theater Chicago), Angela Vela (host of Seven Deadly Sins reading series), Shannon Matesky (slam poet), Nicole Bond (member of Chicago Slam Works), and Erica Dreisbach (writer and web designer). The night is moderated by Chicago Slam Works Executive Director J.W. Basilo.

There is an $8 cover at the door. Come on out for a night of great entertainment and a chance to vote and be part of the experience.
