Award winning performers Brad Lawrence (Moth’s podcast & winner of 2 Moth Grand SLAMS) and Boston native Cyndi Freeman (Internationally known storyteller, New York Fringe award winner, MothSlam Winner) have been invited to perform at Speak Up in Lynn as featured tellers.
Started in 2008, Speak UP: Spoken Word Open 'Mike' meets every Wednesday at the Walnut Street Coffee Café in Lynn, MA. Come this week for the best in poetry, storytelling, jive talking, ranting, listening and just hanging out with each other. Sign up for the open mike lottery starts at 7 PM with the actual talking kicking off at 7:30 PM. Jim Chalmers, the owner of the cafe, is delighted to host Speak Up. He has bought a PA, installed lights and moves the chairs around for us. If you enjoy Speak Up please buy a beer (or a coffee or a dessert) this Wednesday. It helps his bottom line considerably. Thanks.
At 7:30 all who want to speak will be in a lottery that decides the speaking order. The Featured Performer for the evening goes on at 8:30. We pass the basket to get them gas money home.
