About the Event

What up beautiful people?

We went an entire year without having an Experience and now we got our third one happening on July 24th. It feels good to be back, doesn’t it? And y'all keep showing up and showing love. Thank you.

Our recent Poetry Open Mic Experience was LIT, as usual. The room was filled with beautiful people, amazing talent, great food, dope music, and the energy was high. If you were in the building, you already know. And it’s time to do it again. (Also, if you were at our recent Poetry Open Mic Experience featuring Just Mike the Poet, we'd love to hear your feedback on our Google Business Page. Simply click HERE then click the tab to leave a review. Share photos and videos, too.)

If you didn’t know, we sold out every experience since we've been allowed back outside, and if you want to be in the building, we know you need to, you may want to grab your tickets early. This one will sell out, too.

So, let’s get to the details:

Saturday, July 24th, at 6:00 PM the doors over at REC Philly will open, in Philly at the old Gallery, current Fashion District, and we kick the night off with some music, activation stations, networking, eating, and open mic list sign ups. At around 6:45 PM, our host, Luis Marrero (@imsuperdope_), will hop on the mic to kick the night off. We will have a DJ, vendors, visual artists, food, desserts, and a featured poet for the night - Black Chakra all the way from Baltimore. And of course, most of the night gets dedicated to the poets who signed up. We will have some competitions throughout the night, to add some fun and engagement with the audience and many moments of laughs, love, and dancing. At 10:00 PM we will wrap the night up, and send you off… until next time.

That’s pretty much it, on paper, to say the least. These aren’t just “open mic nights” so don’t get it twisted if this is your first time. We turn up and the vibe is everything.

With that said, tickets will sell out so grab them today and meet us there. The cameras will be out so get fly and let’s make memories together.

And remember, this is family. Come connect with some beautiful people and let it change your life.

The Place Artists Call Home

With love, always,

Luis Marrero

For ARTISTS interested in performing:

We will have a 20 slot sign up sheet for the night. This is all we can fit and will do for the night. Please note, not everyone will be able to make the list.

Once this is filled, we cannot allow anymore sign ups due to time.

Please note: each artists gets ONE piece within a 5 minute time slot.

Please note something else: please understand the list WILL close early, due to the amount of artists who come to our open mics. Please do not be upset and do not approach our team trying to get on the mic. This puts our team and host in an uncomfortable and unfair position. Once the list is full, the list will close. No Exceptions. Thank you for understanding.
