All our poets come from the school of poetry slam which is the competetive art of performance poetry. Solomon Sparrow's Electric Whale Revival, a hilarious and inspiring poetry group featuring five of the world's top performance poets, comes to town for one night only this fall.

Biography

This fall, the Boston Poetry Slam presents touring artists Solomon Sparrow's Electric Whale Revival, in town for one night only: Saturday, September 29.

Solomon Sparrow's Electric Whale Revival is a spoken word experience like no other. This exceptional and inspiring verbal circus features five of the world's top performance poets gathered together for only one month on the same tour bus to travel cross-country, with five lasers of love aimed directly at your pelv... heartstrings.

Our poets collectively represent every National and World Poetry Slam since 2003, save one. This is a rare extravaganza made up of side-splits and stitches, hovercrafts and marbles, chocolate bars and polar bears, full of lightning and geese, bumping.

The Electric Whale Revival was born to inspire the masses to live fully without sounding like a slimy metaphysical experience. It is a total theater experience with audience interaction, music, laughter, and thoughtful commentary by five of the best writers/spoken word artists America has to offer.
