Carlos Robson of Charlotte, North Carolina's Concrete Generation will be the feature for Phoenix Tongue at The Red Tub 134 1/2 State St West Columbia SC on April 18, 2007. Carlos never thought he would be a writer, much less a poet. But as long as he can remember, he's always wanted to be a storyteller. And since touching his first spoken word stage in late 2005, he has done exactly that. Competing in everything from local, regional and international poetry slams. He represented Charlotte in the 2006 Individual World Poetry Slam, and again in 2007. Be a part of his "Swing Low" experience at 9 pm. As always No Cover at This Free Speech Zone.

For more information and hear one of his signature pieces: myspace.com/carlosrobson

Phoenix Tongue Open Mic is every Wednesday, exclusively at The Red Tub beginning at 8 PM. Contact Director John Starino jmstar5@aol.com, www.myspace.com/sildagpromotion, or 803-463-8297 for more information.







Dear Friends,

This is your initial invitation to the upcoming Phoenix Tongue Poetry Slam this Wednesday the 7th of March at The Red Tub 134 1/2 State St. West Columbia, SC at 9PM. Sign up now to be involved in this evolutionary as well as revolutionary event. Please indicate your primary goal as a Slammer or Support Team of which include time keeping, score keeping, judging, fund raising and street team as well as any jack of all trades. Individuals that will be at The Red Tub by 8:45 will be able to Slam. Please send me an email asap to ascertain your involvement.

Please be aware that this six member Slam Team will hold rehearsal times at a location to be determined once a week. It is imperative that anyone wishing to be on this Phoenix Tongue Slam Team be prepared to designate time to write and perform group pieces, be available to travel competing with Teams locally, and regionally. Most importantly you are required to have fun, for it is for the Love of Poetry. Please feel free to email me with any of your questions.

Here is a link for "what is slam" faq's

Under no uncertain terms feel that you are not good enough to qualify. As I said earlier this is an evolutionary process. You have believed in yourself to the cathartic level of reciting your poetry in front of an audience, now grow to have your work be performed in an "Olympic" style event competing with different teams across the country. "The Points are not the Point, the Point is the Poetry." As a testament to Slam I would not have been able to commit to being the Founder of Phoenix Tongue, I did not get my initiation through Poetry Slam.

Please feel invigorated to become a Member of The Phoenix Tongue Slam Team.

There will be more information given, once The Phoenix Tongue Slam Team is formed.

To Recap:

Phoenix Tongue Poetry Slam Team try out is at The Red Tub at 9 PM.
Bring your best pieces for this 2 Round Slam.
Come to have fun.

Any Questions Send them to me at JMstar5@aol.com

Thank you for your interest and support. See you Wednesday.
