Levitt Amp greensboro

Greensboro | North Carolina

The Poetry Cafe and Abyss & UpRite Lions

May 28, 2016 at 6pm


Hosted by poet, educator, and entertainer, Josephus III, the Poetry Café is a monthly open mic and weekly radio show on WNAA 90.1FM that features poetry, spoken word and music by local and internatinoally-acclaimed artists alike. As Josephus III says, “the goal is building community through sharing our lives and telling our stories. Life is a stage! We want you to come join ours!” On Saturday, May 28, the Levitt AMP Greensboro Music Series will combine the Poetry Café’s finely-curated cast of poets and musicians with live musical sets by Georgia’s nationally recognized spoken word poet and musician, Abyss, and Las Vegas-by-way-of-Greensboro hip hop favorites, the UpRite Lions. This will be an evening of interactive, inspirational, soulful poetry and music that will have you moving, snapping, and clapping.
