Droopy the BrokeBaller and Dwayne B. the Crochet Kingpin present the legendary “Spit Dat” weekly open mic event! Thursday nights, 8:30pm to 11:30pm at the Emergence Community Arts Collective (733 Euclid Street NW, Washington, DC, near Banneker High School and Howard University School of Business). Only $1 cover charge!*
Spit Dat is one of the longest running open mics in Washington, D.C. It’s a great atmosphere for amateur poets as well as more experienced poets. Many of today’s most well known poets began by performing at the Spit Dat open mic series. The open mic recently won a NUSPA (National Undergroud Spoken Word Award) for venue of the year.
We are kicking off September with a legend! GAIL DANLEY is the embodiment of Truth. She is sweet, but she doesn’t sugar coat. She is beautiful, but she can make you feel the ugliest emotions. She will always bring you right to where you need to be. Her performance is a journey, and we are honored to have her on our stage!
