Dny Passes The Mic says
It's time for a changing of the guard at Austin Poetry Slam! Longtime (five years!) Slammaster, Danny Strack (Dny), is passing the reins to Jomar Valentin!!!

Dny is a mousy troll who is retiring to live under bridges and collect tolls in the form of riddle answers and delicious cheese. The bridge will be on a farm upstate where he can run and play and juggle with the other mouse-trolls to his heart's delight.

Jomar is a cyclops unicorn with one eye and one horn and an appetite for purple people. He's excited about taking over the slam because it will provide him with access to the slam's precious squid-coal reserves.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, we're holding a special show on WEDNESDAY, Jan 20th at Spider House Ballroom!

Confirmed poets include:
Allen Small
Genevieve Van Cleve
Chris Formey
Krissi Reeves
Zachary Caballero
Brently Caballero
Glori B
Christopher Michael
Teresa Johnson
Shae Harris
SC Says
Ed Koch
Jess Howard
Chucky Black
Danielle Bellone

and many more!!!!

Under Dny's leadership, APS moved to Spider House Ballroom, grew to crowds of over 200 people a week, and earned such accolades as 2015 Southern Fried Champions and National Group Champions! Wow!

Come see the poets that helped make that happen and celebrate with a juried list of favorites, as well as many other surprises!!!! Yay? Yay!
