In the category of “things I love to do in SL other than take pretty pictures” is to make sure I’m at the Rhythm & Rhyme Lounge every Wednesday night at 6pm (SLT). MajesticAlliteration, the owner, has recently changed the format from “love and war” to an open-mic night called, “Mic Up”, that features some of the best slam poetry in Second Life.
Majestic and her co-host, DP Xue, are accomplished artists in this form, but also have a great dynamic to fill-in between the performers. All types of spoken-word have been welcomed to the new format, including singers.
Any one looking for the “Love and War” event can find it re-titled to “Mad Mondays” at DP Xue’s new place, DP’s Spoken Word Speak-Easy, on Mondays at 6pm.
Majestic and DP have also co-founded a new group called “Gimme the Mic Spoken Word Syndicate” where member lounge owners and/or poetry hosts can announce in-world events in a single forum.
