Tuesday Night Open Mic
14th & V | Langston | July 24,2012 | 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

A Busboys and Poetry event! For two hours, audiences can expect a diverse chorus of voices and a vast array of professional spoken word performers, open mic rookies, musicians and a different host every week. Expect to be moved, expect a packed house, expect the unexpected, but above all come with an open mind and ear.

Tonight's host is Gowri K

Gowri Koneswaran is a poet, singer, and lawyer whose parents immigrated to the U.S. from Sri Lanka. Her advocacy has addressed animal welfare, the environment, and the rights of prisoners and the criminally accused. She was a Lannan Fellow of the Folger Shakespeare Library and has performed poetry at Lincoln Center Out of Doors (NYC), the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage, and the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. Gowri was a member of the 2010 DC Southern Fried Slam team and has served as program director at BloomBars community arts space in Washington, DC, where she hosts and manages events.
