CommUNITY spoken word kicks off their 2012/2013 series with a new venue and some quality spoken word (Wednesday, November 7, 6:30pm, admission by donation, Sonic Temple, 1674 Hollis Street). Featuring Native Son (Marvin Trimm)—whose material takes an objective view of social and political issues and looks through the framework of history to engage his audience. The evening will be hosted by Verena Rizg, and music from Zokugaku will accompany poets during the open mic. Shahib “Simp” Gillard, Hermitofthewoods and Mary-Grace Koile will fight it out slam poetry-style for charity, the winner taking the night’s proceeds for their charity of choice.
