On Thursday, May 2nd, the renowned Busboys and Poetry event series in Columbia, Maryland will host their weekly open mic night, this time featuring the incredibly talented Lady Brion as the host. Lady Brion is an internationally acclaimed spoken word artist, poetry coach, activist, and educator who has won numerous prestigious slams including the 2016 National Poetry Slam, and was ranked the #1 female slam poet in the world in 2021. With her powerful words, fierce delivery, and undeniable stage presence, Lady Brion is sure to electrify the crowd and set the perfect tone for an unforgettable night of poetry and performance. For two hours, audiences can expect an incredibly diverse array of voices from seasoned professionals to open-mic newcomers taking the stage to share their truth through the transformative art of spoken word. The open mic setting creates an intimate, judgment-free zone where poets can bear their souls and connect with listeners on a profound level. Whether you're a longtime poetry fan or simply someone craving a soul-stirring artistic experience, this event is an absolute must. With a different host each week, you never know what unique energy and perspective will be brought to the mic, but you can always count on being moved, inspired, and challenged by the sheer talent and vulnerability on display. The cozy, dimly-lit Busboys and Poetry venue provides the perfect ambiance to lose yourself in the rhythm and cadence of the language. An open mic night like this is a rare opportunity to witness art in its purest, most revelatory form as it's being created in real-time. So prepare to have your mind opened, your emotions stirred, and your appreciation for the power of words deepened. Whether you go to perform or just to observe, the Thursday night open mic hosted by the one-and-only Lady Brion promises to be a transcendent experience you won't soon forget.
