 June 9 - OM Center Poetry Slam
7:30pm • $7
What is a poetry Slam?
It's competition poetry; meaning humor, politics, enlightenment, sex, entertainment masquerading as literature, literature masquerading as entertainment. Poets will read, then judges will flash Olympic-style scoring to determine who goes on to the next round until there's just one poet left standing as the champion. It's a lot of fun!

Hosted by Matt Mason. Open mic starts at 7:30 followed by the featured performer and the slam; sign up BEFORE 7:30 as signup is limited and will only be allowed after 7:30 if less than 8 are in the slam.


June 14 - Michael Mandrell In Concert
7:30pm • $8 

Michael Mandrell is an artistic and passionate contemporary American fingerstyle guitarist with an ear for the creative side of the world fusion genre. His orchestral compositions offer equal parts world and new age, an array of middle Eastern rhythms and scales, with tinges of folk and an infusion of Celtic overtones.

He is one of those rare artists who has a strong sense of his Western musical roots, yet can make beautiful and sophisticated forays into the music of the East. Mandrell's guitar playing is extraordinary. His tunes are lyrical, the stuff fairy tales are made of: slightly jazzy, seductively smooth and consistently beautiful. His intricate fretboard work and technique reflect an artist of vast creativity and a pan-global vision of the instrument he loves.

Mandrell performed with the world fusion group Taos, co-producing their CD, The Deepening Edge. His self-produced CD, The Great Spiral Dance, continues in the fusion tradition, with his original guitar compositions masterfully arranged with flutes of the world, fretless bass, East Indian percussion, Uillean pipes, and many other world instruments.

Known for his beautiful, fiery and transcendent guitar mastery, Mandrell has been featured on Public Radio International’s “Echoes” with host John Diliberto.


More than just accomplished guitarist, Mandrell also has an on-stage energy not to be missed. From Celtic mythos to Hindustani rhythms, Mandrell's concerts feature new songs and guitar pieces with his world acoustic music tour.
