Open Mic w/ Pgh Poetry Collective w/ host K Compliment

March 19 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Kevin Compliment hosted slam competitions with the Know-Eye poetry collective while
attending The College of Wooster. Once discovering the slam scene was alive and well in almost any
state he visited, Kevin rushed to find such community in his hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. Soon
performing his first spoken word piece for a Steel City Slam event at The Shadow Lounge. Kevin
maintains that the open mic is a sacred space of expression, and that volunteered vulnerability, crowd
and artist interaction, the scene creates strength. All credit due to the beat poets for encouraging
snapping, and call-backs. Kevin embraces this excitable tradition with the hope that as the scene and
traditions evolve, the sense of strength and community remain.
