Naked Bulb Lit Open Mic 7pm Free
For November's Naked Bulb, our last bulb of 2018, we wanted to truly break your hearts _and_ make you laugh, with all the emotions in between. That's why this one features none other than Abe Becker! As always, open mic as well, so show up early, sign up often, and order LOTS of food and drink from our favorite Off Season NB venue, The Octopus Literary Salon!
Abe Becker was recently published in Fifth Wednesday Journal, Drunk In A Midnight Choir, Cogitate, After Happy Hour Review, and other publications. He is the 2018 Berkeley Grand Slam Champion, a Grand Slam Champion of Cal Slam (at UC Berkeley), a CUPSI finalist as both poet and coach, the Poet Laureate of Awkward (according to someone who should know), and winner of Group Piece Finals at the National Poetry Slam. He has read and led writing workshops everywhere from homeless shelters to universities, and works as a caregiver for quadriplegic and elderly people in the East Bay.
