Tonight's Open Mic Bards & Brews at Birmingham Botanical Gardens
The Birmingham Public Library’s (BPL) popular Bards & Brews poetry performance/beer tasting series is hitting the road in July. Held the first Friday of each month, the next edition of Bards & Brews will travel to the Birmingham Botanical Gardens located at 2612 Lane Park Road. The program, which will be an OPEN MIC, begins at 6:30 p.m. on July 6, 2012 in the Ireland Room with live music and poetry performances starting at 7:00. Emcee Brian “Voice Porter” Hawkins will deftly guide both novice and veteran poets through an evening of verse with topics that run the gamut from romantic relationships to the local political scene.
Craft beer will be available for sampling, along with light refreshments. Attendees must be 18 years or older to be admitted, and 21 years or older to be served. IDs will be checked.
Bards & Brews is usually held at various locations around town. Look for us on August 3, 2012 at the Avondale Regional Library located at 509 40th Street South. Check out the Bards & Brews page on Facebook for more information. This program is made possible by grants from the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
