Salt Lines - Feb 4th

Salt Lines is the four powerhouses ANDREA GIBSON (Women of the World Poetry Slam Champion), DENISE JOLLY (Seattle Poetry Slam), SONYA RENEE (Individual National Poetry Slam Champion), and TARA HARDY (Bent Writing Institute). These women represent some of the strongest and most respected talent coming out of the international Poetry Slam circuit.This verbal quartet will storm, sing, slam, and sling salt into the eye of all that has ever silenced voices meant to be heard. Their celebration is one of being basic to the earth as salt. Necessary, life allowing, wound stinging, and let's face it, tasty. A salt line is a ring left on a hat or heart or sleeve inspired by exertion or labor. So, don't be surprised if they inspire you to work up your own sweat, because these four elemental poets will work stages into assembly lines of release, revolt, and redemption. These women do not provide a clean slate they do however provide a dirty one worn proudly. (Salt Lines Myspace)
