Tuesday Night Open Mic Poetry hosted by Droopy the Broke Baller
14th & V | Langston Room | February 18, 2014 | 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
A Busboys and Poetry Event! For two hours, audiences can expect a diverse chorus of voices and a vast array of professional spoken word performers, open mic rookies, musicians, and a different host every week. Expect to be moved, expect a packed house, expect the unexpected, but above all, come with an open mind and ear.

Tonight's host is Drew Anderson aka "Droopy the Broke Baller", the master of multi-dimensional mania. Audiences struggle with whether to label him "comedian" or "poet", "MC" or "emcee", but they never struggle to label his explosive exploits as entertaining. An award-winning filmmaker, veteran educator, and host of DC's legendary "Spit Dat" open mic, Droopy is known lovingly as "The Black Weird Al Yankovic" for his infamously hilarious spoofs of popular songs. His latest critically-acclaimed CD, "The Bully: The Aww-Dacity of Broke", won the Award for Best Spoken Word Album at the 2011 National Underground Spoken-word Poetry Awards (NUSPA). Droopy enjoys jogging in the middle of impending hurricanes, writing in the middle of impending heartache, and drafting bios that make him look ultimately cooler than he truly is. Watch Video.
