Breaking Bad Poetry

This Breaking Bad Poetry Show was held in Troy Cunio's house which is an old bungalow.

There were performances from Breaking Bad Poets, Joy Stokes, Nathaniel C. Bek, Mata Dor, Leigh Fields, and Troy Cunio. Jazz guitarist Syoma Klochko accompanied many poets, adding to the hip vibe.

The event will preceded by a flash tattoo session by Bruce Lea. I decided to start my sketch of the tattoo session. Sine I started my sketch in the living room, I stayed there while the poets read in the dining room. Thankfully I could see the poets but I couldn't see the crowd listening. There was no cover, but authors had books, buttons, and other fun stuff for sale.

There will be a Halloween Poetry Slam Hosted by Lee Fields, at The Milk Bar Lounge (2424 E Robinson St, Orlando, Florida 32803). Happy Halloween! Come fright up the night with us as only poets can, with words! We'll be relaxing the rules as props are allowed, and an extra half point for all competitors in costume! We're also giving a half point for all Halloween related, spooky, or persona pieces. Come see spoken word performed live, feel art made in the moment, experience slam poetry for yourself. So what are you waiting for? Winner gets $50!
