MIC CHECK SLAM FEATURING NEIL HILBORN

  • Revolutions Bar and Cafe 211 South Main Street Bryan, TX, 77803 United States (map)

Were you stupid excited TGS weekend about competition poetry?? Well here is your chance to come out and compete in it. SUnday October the 18th we will be having another Mic Check SLam night...but that is not it folks......Can you say feaaaturee? (In the cool funny way that only really works in person and is kind of impossible to imitiate through text)
Well we have a feature and it is none other then Neil Hilborn.
Neil Hilborn is a College National Poetry Slam champion and a 2011 graduate with honors from Macalester College. In 2013, his poem "OCD" went viral, garnering over ten million views, making it the most-viewed slam poem ever. He has performed in 37 states and three countries, and he is the author of Our Numbered Days, published by Button Poetry Press. Originally from Houston, Texas, he now lives in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

"My first feature ever was at Mic Check five years ago, and it gave me such a huge amount of confidence in the beginning of my career. That confidence helped me continue past the innumerable frustrations and setbacks that any artist starting out is bound to encounter, so I owe a great deal of my success to Mic Check. In this feature I'm going to take a look back at the past five years, and I'm going to examine what has changed both in me and in Bryan, Texas."
