9pm ($5 at the door)
"Listen" will feature some up and coming local artists with special appearances by members of the 2008 San Diego Slam Team. The headliner will be San Diego's representative for the 2008 Individual World Poetry Slam, Rudy Francisco. I just discovered he'll be debuting the University Ave mixtape exclusively for this special engagement.
As an artist, Rudy Francisco combines activism and poetry to enlighten the minds of all those who witness his performance. Rudy eloquently absorbs the experiences of those around him, synthesizes them and converts stories into poetry in an attempt to captivate and inform those around him. Rudy Francisco has featured at numerous universities, colleges and poetry readings across the region and currently holds the record for the most San Diego poetry slams won consecutively. He was crowned the Grand Slam Champion of San Diego in 2007, competed with the Hollywood Slam team in the National Poetry Slam in 2008.
