Slamlandia House Show – ft. Danielle Estelle Ramsay & Fitz
September 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$5
It’s time for another Slamlandia house show – this time featuring the terrific Danielle Estelle Ramsay & Fitz!
This show will be held at Pointy House (2930 SE Clay Street) on Saturday, August 24th. Show will be out in Pointy’s backyard (subject to move inside if weather is a problem (cause Portland) but highly doubtful that will be the case). Door opens & signups at 6:00pm, show starts at 6:30pm. Some snacks and drinks will be provided (on a donation basis) – feel free to bring your own as well!
***There will be a $5 required entry fee at the door***
This house show will have an open mic that you can sign up to read in, as well as short spotlight features from Chelsea Sieg and Kate Leddy, and a special double feature from the Danielle and Fitz!
Danielle Estelle Ramsay is a queer poet based largely out of Spokane, Washington. She has been writing poetry for much of her life, and has been writing and competing in slam for over a decade. She has represented both Spokane and Pittsburgh at the Women of the World Poetry Slam, she has been a part of several nationals teams, and most recently coached Spokane’s most successful nationals team to date! Her work focuses on topics such as a mental illness, queer experience, particularly with regard to ministerial queer experience, with a smattering of love, loss, and heartbreak throughout her poems. She must be drinking tea at all times.
Fitz is a performance poet based out of Spokane Washington where they have made it their mission to fall in love with strangers through the written and spoken word. They were a member of the 2015 and 2016 Spokane National Poetry Slam teams and represented Spokane in the 2016 Individual World Poetry Slam as well as the 2017 Women of the World Poetry Slam. They are also the current host of the weekly cult classic local poetry open mic, “Broken Mic”. Their work is passionate and authentic, dealing with queer existence, sobriety, recovery from trauma, romantic love, and sometimes pastries.
Note of accessibility: This show will take place in a backyard – there is a paved path that leads into the space but otherwise it is primarily grass. There are two steps leading up to the little wooden porch where performances will take place. The bathroom is accessible on the first floor of the house – there are also two steps to get into the house. There will be space to sit on the grass or stand, but chairs will also be provided and given priority to those who need them.
