Thursday Night Open-Mic
- June 29, 2016
Join host (and beat-boxing poet) Kosi in Hyattsville on Thurs., June 30, at 9PM
Mandla 'Kosi' Dunn is tap-dancing, beat-boxing poet, longboarder, and Individual Studies major at the University of Maryland in College Park. He enjoys Charm's Super Blowpops, plot twists, the Baltimore "Two Step," 2D Animation, and the occasional Twitter rant. As an alumni of the DC Youth Slam Team, Kosi Dunn earned his proverbial stripes competing/performing nationally as well as serving as Busboys and Poets' monthly youth open mic host at their 5th & K location. Kosi hopes to foster a diverse community of student poet-activists and cannot wait to share his inimitable excitement and love for storytelling with the BB&P Hyattsville family.
For two hours, audiences can expect a diverse chorus of voices, and a vast array of professional spoken word performers, open mic rookies, musicians and a different host every week. Expect to be moved, expect a packed house, expect the unexpected, but above all come with an open mind and ear.
