Friday, 9 & Saturday, 10 @ 9pm
Clarence Muse Café Theatre | $10

Four brothers, DA BEAR, SIMON PHOENIX, AWAJI JOHNSON, GODS INK, hit the stage like the underground poets of the 1960s! In a word, they rip-and-rap sharing personal experiences while honoring four poetic forerunners in a night of new wave poetry and smooth slamming jazz. When the ‘word’ and ‘jazz’ are mixed, you get a good night of entertainment gumbo!
