Sarcasm Goes to Hell Tour- District 4: the Poetry Reading
August 15, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The Klute is the most recognizable voice from Arizona on poetry slam’s national stage. He grew up along the shores of the Atlantic Ocean on Palm Beach, Florida where he cultivated a love of sharks to become an activist for their preservation through the medium of spoken word, and has had the privilege of sharing the waves with those fantastic fish, from the great whites of Isla Guadalupe, Mexico to the reef sharks of Egypt’s Red Sea coast. He has represented the cities of Mesa, Phoenix, and Sedona at the National Poetry Slam 10 times between 2002 and 2014 and has opened for spoken word superstars such as Saul Williams and Amber Tamblyn and has been the featured performer in such legendary venues as Vancouver’s Cafe Deux Soliels and New York City’s Bowery Poetry Cafe.
Patrick Hare was a member of three Mesa National Poetry Slam Teams. He was a pioneer in the field of sarcasm, before the age of snark. He has hosted more than his fair share of poetry events and featured at nearly every venue in the valley.
Bill Campana is a 1955 model who has outlived his paint job and warranty, and writes poems just to prove it. He has three books of poetry out with Brick Cave Media: Said Beauty to the Blues, The Ragtime of Modern Living and flotsam and gomorrah (parlour tricks and other mysteries). He has a high school diploma but has no idea where the hell it is.
