ART + STAGE
Bards & Brews Poetry Performance Series
October 4, 2013
The October 4 edition of the Birmingham Public Library’s (BPL) popular Bards & Brews poetry performance/beer tasting series will travel to the Avondale Brewing Co.
Held every month except December, this Bards & Brews will be a SLAM—first place winner gets $200, and second place winner $100. The festivities start at 6:30 pm with live music, and poetry performances start at 7:00 pm. Emcee Brian “Voice Porter” Hawkins will deftly guide both novice and veteran poets through an evening of verse with topics that run the gamut from romantic relationships to local politics. Craft beer will be available for sampling and light refreshments will be served. Attendees must be 18 years or older to be admitted, and 21 years or older to be served. IDs will be checked. Bards & Brews is usually held on the first Friday of the month at various locations around town. Check out the Bards & Brews page on Facebook for more information. This program is made possible by grants from the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
