Tonight, we've got a really great feature for you from the queer NYC duo, Slam Up! You will thrill to their presentation of poetry, music, improv and badassitude! Plus a regular slam with $100 in cash on the line! Hosted by Christopher Michael and backed by Chino Casino on the turntables! More about Slam Up! It’s TMI time with Cali & Emily! Prepare for a musical ride through the many stages of life and shades of love-- requited, unrequited, gay, straight, queer, or, well, just "creative." WARNING: Contains wonderfully, hilariously, poignantly, adult material. In the words of a critic: "Slam Up is honest, uncertain, certain, self-contradictory, adamant, passionate, and confrontational. It's underground speakeasy meets bubblegum pop. It's dirty, jubilant, tender and inspiring. Not exactly a comedy music set, not exactly a poetry slam, not exactly a lesbian folk duo- Slam Up is something all to itself." - William Glenn, Fringe Review For all things Slam Up (bios, music, press, videos, blog, & more) go to This year they've performed at Love Fest in the Midwest and the FringeNYC in addition to 85 shows in 35 states. They have performed for students at Emory, Tulane, Stanford, The College of the Atlantic, Rutgers, Wesleyan, Coastal Carolina, SUNY Purchase, and have done feature sets at Northampton Mass Poetry and the Eugene Poetry Slam. Extremely good!
