1. Because it's the last time Urbana will ever be in The Red Room at the DL Lounge (95 Delancey St. at Ludlow)!
2. To hear where Urbana will be moving next season after the National Poetry Slam (although if you're reading this, you'll find out next week).
3. Because after 6 years of visionary leadership, Jeanann Verlee is stepping down as Slammaster and she needs to be celebrated righteously!
and finally . . .
4. To cheer on Team Urbana as they take on teams from the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, The LouderARTS Project, and Loser Slam at Urbana's annual GRUDGE MATCH, aka The New York City Regional TEAM Poetry Slam!
Team Urbana demonstrating their baddest, stone-killer gangsta faces (except for Olivia, who is still working on hers) last week at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe.
Admission is $7 (minors allowed only with adult supervision).
