Every now and then we like to highlight a little known event or place in NYC that promotes a cool vibe. The Lamb poetry slam is one of those events. If you're looking for a crowd of creatives to parlay and have a drink with, this is the group. Sorry we can't really pinpoint exactly how you can join the party but we can point you in the right direction. It wouldn't be called underground if it was easy to find, now would it?
Personally, I had a great time. I met a lot of wonderful and talented people that I still stay in touch with. This event in particular was held near union square at Nevada Smiths. Its a nice spot especially if you're into sports bars. Though it was three levels, the poetry event was held on the 3rd floor tucked away in the furthest corner of the room. The vibe was intimate and the room filled with artist, writers, singers and poets. Open mic wasn't offered but I'm sure if someone had asked that it could have been arranged. The music was great, the cocktails were strong and there was plenty of food.
I hope to attend this event again before the summer closes and if I know ahead of time Ill be sure to share with you guys.
