The Minor Disturbance open mike welcomes home a wandering star

Denver's vibrant slam poetry community has deep roots. Minor Disturbance is where the youngest poets grow into their words -- poets like former East High student Libby Olga Howard, who's gone on to find her future at Lewis and Clark College. Howard, a Minor Disturbance mainstay of a few years ago, will be the featured guest at tonight's weekly youth open mike, downstairs at Hooked on Colfax.

The performance testing ground is mainly reserved for poets nineteen and younger, but people of all ages can drop in to listen between 6:30 and 9 p.m.

As Howard herself writes on the Facebook event page, "Come dance, sing, spit, paint, hug, high five, listen, embrace, build and enjoy a very, very special night." Don't doubt it for a moment.
