Topic: Slam Tour
(Thanks to John Crow, Killeen Slammaster for the flyer, and to Chris Michael and the Killeen Facebook Profile for the photos)
Touring has been really fun! I've been making small circles and ending back in Austin. Killeen kicks off the longest leg so far, three weeks in the middle of America. This is my first time out here, and I had heard a lot of conflicting reports, but I was expecting a friendly crowd since I have a lot of friends on the scene, and I was pleased to be right!
The Killeen Poetry Slam has a new home in a beautiful venue called La Rumba Lounge, check out how beautiful it is in there!
Plus the Killeen scene seems to be really picking up steam. There was a strong, young, enthusiastic crowd, and they seemed to dig on most of what I performed.
See me in this photo?
This is one of my favorite performance photos ever:

It's been about a week, but I'm pretty sure this was my set list:
How to Feel Good About Saving the Environment
Walls and Sidewalks
A Scientist in Unrequited Love
Newton's First Law
