January 18: Michael Monroe Features

Stone Soup Poetry meets from 8-10 p.m. every Monday at the Out of The Blue Art Gallery at 106 Prospect Street with an open mike sign-up at 7:30 p.m. On January 18, we welcome local poet and open miker Michael Monroe to his first Stone Soup feature.

Profoundly silly, endearingly offbeat, unexpectedly moving (only occasionally broken) and ultimately entertaining, Michael Monroe is a fresh new voice in the spoken word performance/slam poetry scene. An ex preacher, nouveau heretic and regular open-mic performer at the Cantab Lounge in Central Square (Cambridge, MA) he has the ability to engage an audience and make people feel something serious, something funny, and just plain something human that you can take with you and think to yourself, "Oh Shit -- did I leave something in the oven?"
