Bottle Rockets and Sure-Fire Ways to Help Your Slam Team

Eric Bodwell, one of the producers of Poetry-n-Beer, writes us to say:
Here I am selling fireworks in Peralta New Mexico. Albuquerque is always on the hustle.
We look for giving hands at every turn.
In ABQ’s history of going to the National Poetry Slam:
  • we have driven my truck to Madison.
  • We have begged to get to Chicago.
  • Lived large in Providence.
  • Stayed with friends in Seattle and Minneapolis.
We are scrapping to get to where we can compete; always. If you could make a concerted effort to come by Poetry and Beer a week from Wednesday night July 6th at 8pm at Blackbird Buvette and give us a dollar or two we might not need to scrap.  We will have a spotlight feature from ABQ Unidos, our open mic and then a showcase feature from your very own ABQ2011 Slam Team! City Champ OLIVIA GATWOOD, Brooke von Blomberg, Damien Flores, Joseph Andres Romero, and Erin Northern.
If you love living in ABQ, if you think your city should be equally represented in Boston then please come and give freely. This team like all our teams speaks with a grit that can’t be denied. THe team includes
We bring your thoughts to a national audience, so if you love the mountains that have a river in the valley or consider yourself a new mexican then please come out and show some love for your team from Burque!
