Cool off and showcase your skills at an Elementz Cincinnati Open Mic night
Don’t let the heat stress you. Come chill out with dope rhymes and popsicles at Elementz Cincinnati Spoken Word Open Mic Night. For an ice-cold drink to go with your popsicle, mention the code work “Rewind.” Elementz not only provides a creative space for members to learn and build, but it provides a performance space as well. Also, DJ Alexander Stallitix Stallings will be on the 1’s & 2’s.
The Spoken Word Open Mic night will be on Thursday, July 11th from 5:30-6:30 p.m at Findlay Market. All poets, spoken word, lyricists, and artists are welcome. They will even feature local teen poets from Louder Than A Bomb and from around the city including Cincinnati’s Poet Laureate, Manuel Iris.
If you would like to perform for the open mic night, arrive early to claim your spot on the performance list. Please note: your content must be family-friendly.
