Spoken Word Jam Thursday at the Lime Spider

This flew into my email box today and it sounds like a good evening out at the Lime Spider for a good cause as well:

Attention Poets: Spoken Word Artists!

The Lime Spider
207 S. Main St
Akron, OH
June 28th 8pm-11pm

Suggested Donation: $5

Part of the Until the Violence Stops: Northeast Ohio campaign, the Spoken Word Jam is an opportunity for local poets and spoken word artists to express their
sorrow, outrage and frustration about violence towards
women in our society. It is also a chance to speak words of love, respect and healing to our mothers, sisters and daughters. A local hiphop and spoken word artist, Ace Boogie will be our featured performer, opening the show with a half hour set. Ace has produced six albums through SchoolHouse Productions and Amplified Recordings that set the standard for a hip hop culture that defies trends of gross objectification.

In addition, the local performance painting group Apollonova will do an oil painting during the show that will be raffled off at the end of the night.

A silent auction will feature the work of five extraordinary local artists.
All proceeds will go to local battered women's shelters and rape crisis centers, as well as to the global campaign to end violence against women.

Join Up. Speak Out.
