Tomorrow night at Rouge Lounge we will be closing out our summer slam series with a bang! The top scoring poets from our preliminary rounds will battle it out for the $200 grand prize!
Come out and cheer on your favorites tomorrow night at Rouge lounge. Doors @8pm, SLAM @ 9pm.
We recently had one of our frequent audience members come through and write up a piece on why Rouge was her favorite spot for a Tuesday night. Check out the article at the Edmonton Journal. And come check us out on Tuesday nights!
The inaugural Edmonton Poetry Slam team is headed to the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word in Ottawa to compete at the national slam competition. So, we are holding a fundraiser show to help us send our team to Ottawa. Please come out and support us! We would love to see you at the show.
