Public Poetry, a local nonprofit, is running a 3 day poetry film festival in March. They reached out to us because they wanted to highlight the work Write About Now has done through poetry and film and wanted to spotlight Houston-based poets. So we've curated a 3-4D poetry experience for you. Some of the city's dopest wordsmiths will simultaneously read their poems while recordings of the same poem are playing in the background. This is some art imitating life imitating art type shit. And this curated performance will take place at Cafe Brasil on March 22. Doors open at 8:00 pm. Show starts at 8:30 pm.
For tickets this sing click "General Admission Friday, March 22 Only." For tickets to the entire film festival, you can get the "Best Value: Three Day Pass."
