Peace Jam

For anyone looking to check out some spoken word tonight, February 22, head over to the Asbury Event Center at 3001 Vallejo Denver (the big hillside church in the Highland neighborhood) where Palestinian-born poet Suheir Hammad will be speaking and performing at a benefit show for KGNU radio and Cafe Nuba. Tickets are available at the door, $15.
