Flypoet Spoken Word & Music Showcase-Rudy Francisco, Andrew Tyree

Flypoet Showcase is a multi-performer show of primarily spoken word artists but also music and art. John Hensley, the man who puts it all together every month, is amazing. Works his tail off scheduling interesting, thought-provoking and entertaining poets and musicians, and usually an opening comedian. During all of the performances, an artist, Norton Wisdom, is on the side of the stage creating giant art posters interpreting what's going on onstage. He sells his work as well, and I have a few prints that I love. This happens the first Friday of every month.

The cover charge is $20 and we get seats and tables reserved up front. It's a little tricky because we have to buy the VIP tables in groups of four, but I'll work that out, just sign up and send your payment and you're guaranteed a good table. Specialty martinis are $5 before 8:00; otherwise, full bar, but there is no minimum.

Yummy authentic & cheap tacos, burritos & quesadillas available ($1-$4).

Live art by NORTON WISDOM- Watch in amazement as this world class performance painter interprets the poetry and music into live works of art.

The show absolutely starts on time, 8:03 pm, and you are out of there by 10:15 to 10:30 (there is free live reggae after the show, you are welcome to stay, but they do remove our tables, since they are on the dance floor). Also, there is plenty of street parking (but beware - now that it's on Fri. instead of Weds., you have to feed the meter to cover you until 9:00).

PLEASE PAY SIMULTANEOUSLY WITH YOUR RSVP TO HOLD YOUR RSVP, MEETUP HAS NO “MAYBE” OPTION.

Log in directly to Paypal.  Choose “personal” tab, not “business”.  Choose “send money”, enter my email, [masked], in the “To” box.  Enter the amount.  Then be sure to check the box that says “sending money to family or friends” so no fee is deducted.  Then click on “continue,” and on the next screen scroll down to the “message” box and enter the name or date of the event so I’ll know what you are paying for.  Refunds are offered if you cancel by noon on the Monday before the show.

If you mapquest or GPS driving directions, be sure to put a space between "La" and "Brea" when putting in the address, some of the databases get confused and tell you it doesn't exist if you run it all together.

    Hi Ladies - I need your payments today. I have to pay for the tables and I don't have an extra $240 to do so at the moment. Also, the event is nearly full, so I can't hold spots and put others on the waiting list without payment. Thanks for your cooperation!

    I have received payments from Dinae and Uschi.

    I have not received payments from:
    Stacey
    Dena
    Rachelle
    Cherita (2)
