Welcome to the June update from www.speakyoursoul.org!
It's been awhile since Zach Street has graced us with his 'juicy teriyaki mecca' of Tacoma spoken word poetry. Last year he left Tacoma and moved to Hawaii but his spoken word group, Speak Your Soul is still being run by volunteers in Tacoma. While on the big island, Zach is putting his poetic touch on their arts community too. He's started up a Speak Your Soul chapter in Hawaii now--where events like the Volcano Slam and Hilo Spoken Word occur.
After some international travelling, Zach has found himself back in town short term and he's checkin' in on his literary baby: SYS, Tacoma. He will be the featured poet Friday night and if you have seen him before, you know what a fine, talented, energetic and clever spoke word artist he is--This brother beams with more positive energy and light than there are vowels in the word 'Namaste.'
Not only is Zach guest reading at SYS Friday, but SYS premieres in their new venue at The Den Tea Bar. Their former Tacoma reading venue, Vinum Wine Bar, shut down for business in March 2010 and SYS has been homeless for the past two months.
On Friday, June 4th Zach will be featuring at the Speak Your Soul open mic: The Den Tea Bar on Pacific Ave inside Urban Xchange. The Tacoma Team and Zach Street are excited to welcome you to the new skool location and celebrate one of Tacoma's best old skool spoken word artists! Don't miss this! 8pm.
Make June 2010 the month you speak your soul - because everyone has something to say.
