HEaRD in WNY: Shows for Feb. 8 - 14

This week's featured show is Divas Of Poetry at 6 p.m. Thursday.

For one night only! See some of the dopest women poets in Buffalo perform and help raise money to support Buffalo's own reps to the International Women of the World Poetry Slam in Dallas Texas in March. Come enjoy a night of music, poetry, entertainment, and sweet potato fries. Put yo money where yo mouth is and your ears where... um, your ears is?

The Women of the World Poetry Slam (WOWps) is a four day poetry festival, in which 96 of the best female-identified poets in slam will compete against each other in order to crown the Women of the World Poetry Slam champion. In this event, poets compete in preliminary competitions (referred to as “bouts”) over two nights. The 14 poets with the best scores and ranks from those days move on to Finals, where one poet is crowned the champion! In addition to the competition, each day of the festival features poetry workshops, themed open mics, special nighttime events, and parties. Competition at WOWps is limited to poets who live their lives as women, which includes female assigned or identified individuals who are 18+ or 21+ years of age (depending on the Host City). This includes gender non-conforming individuals.

Support these local artists this Thursday, February 8th at TheGypsyParlor on Grant Street in Buffalo starting at 6:00pm! There's a $10 cover at the door and/or, you can donate towards the cause @ https://www.gofundme.com/sending-eve-and-bianca-to-wowps
