When: First Wednesday of every month, 10-11:45 p.m.
Nasty Slam is a head-to-head poetry slam, judged by audience applause. Eight poets enter the competition (first come-first served)—the winner takes half the door money (at least $150) as well as a Nasty Slam tshirt. There are rules: We impose a 3-minute time limit, a requirement for original work, and a demand for your worst attitude.
Price: $10 to watch, $10 to play
