Austin Poetry Slam at Spider House Ballroom

Many events have been canceled or postponed due to coronavirus concerns. Please check with the organization before going to any event.

This isn't your grandma's polite evening of beat poets. This is a battlefield. Poetry, score cards and cash prizes come together for an evening of competitive art every Tuesday at Spider House Ballroom. Five random judges are picked from the audience to score the spoken-word artists as they duke it out on stage.
