Inspired word Open Mic 3 Year Anniversary show!

Anyone that knows me is aware that I am a poet, a rapper, a rocker, and that I love performing and frequent many performing events.  One of those events and by far one my favorite and most often attended is an event called the Inspired Word.  This is a show that is run by Mike Geffner, a renowned journalist.  Most posts that you see from me about performances are from the Inspired word series. It is the most popular show in NYC, and it has the most frequent shows.

So the Inspired word is having a birthday. This birthday will feature a who’s who in the poetry, music, comedy and storytelling scene. Here is a link to their Eventbrite page where you can purchase tickets in advance: Inspired Word 3 year Anniversary. Congratulations to Mike Geffner, Marvin Medlinger, Nathan, Wordz, and the whole Inspired Word family.
