The Jam Slam
featuring Luka Lesson and Royalty Noise

Come and drink the rhythmic whiskey of oral storytelling and spoken word poetry set to the improvised music of a full hip hop jazz band. Eight poets explore the dance between music and words. They'll have a few minutes back-stage to dialogue with the band on the aspects of their piece and then away they go...

Luka Lesson, stylish and smoldering as he is, will stun us yet again harkening us back to when he featured at our first ever Jam Slam in August 2012.

We invite you to come make more history with us in the celebratory procession towards our semi finals and season finals in October and November.

And this month's 1st place prize tops possibly all ever prizes (in the whole world.)

No where else can you experience the juicy heart spill that is Slamalama. We got the:
MC: “That’s how we roll!
Audience: “At the Bella Union yo!”

NO OPEN MIC this night... but September!

1st PLACE: $50 and the opportunity to perform one piece in a special showcase alongside US HEAVY WEIGHT POETRY CHAMPIONS Buddy Wakefield and Anis Mojgani at Footscray Art Centre's Poetic (Days) Weekend at the final event on Saturday 23rd August

We honour the Slam Papi Philosophy - read the details HERE.
