If you’re free Thursday evening, why not get out and support the most exciting genuine multicultural culture event happening in Charlottesville?! In addition to its open mic (hip hop, folk music, poetry, who knows?), Just Lyricz will feature a guest poet this week. He'll provide an extended performance (likely about 30 minutes). His name is Matthew Cuban Hernandez, and he's from Jacksonville, Florida. He is a slam poet who has competed nationally and coaches youth who also perform poetry. Check out this You Tube video for a sample of one of his poems: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cA-Q5yS84h8&feature=related.
The details: Thursday, February 16th from 7pm until 10pm at Random Row bookstore, 315 W. Main St., Charlottesville. $5 entrance fee. Just tell Camisha or Anthony (the DJ) if you would like to get on stage to read/recite some of your work.
