Neon News 140327 Best Originals

Hey Fanz!

Here's an interesting new format:

The Best Originals is a monthly competitive presentation of 5 Spoken Word Artists and 5 Singer-Singwriters performing their own original material. The best of each is determined by the audience members and performers who pay-what-they-can ( i.e. $5 ) to vote for a Spoken Word Artist and a Singer -Songwriter. The two winners split the proceeds. FIRST WEDNESDAY OF EVERY MONTH at Hirut Restaurant

I'll be playing the next one, so come on out and support me!
