Open mic night for poetry, music, comedy, performance art, literary experiments, and whatever you can come up with. Push the envelope; hurt me with your weirdness. We welcome the cerebral, the obscene, the grotesque, the random, the perverted, the odd, the comforting, and the disconcerting. Imagine Jack the Ripper, Mae West, the Marquis de Sade, Betty Boop, Gertrude Stein, and Jack Spicer having an orgy with Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Bjork, Gershwin, Scissor Sisters, Merle Haggard, and Nick Drake providing the music with George Carlin, Sarah Silverman, and Emo Phillips making jokes and inviting others to join along.
