April F-bomb: Tuesday 4/18 at The Mercury Cafe, Hosted by K.B. Jensen featuring Stina French

The F-bomb returns to The Mercury Cafe on Tuesday April 18 at 7:30 PM. Our theme for the night will be Blurry Lines, playing with the intersection between poetry and prose in honor of National Poetry Month. April host K.B. Jensen says “I’ve always been fascinated by the space between poetry and flash and sometimes lack thereof,” so bring your best poetic prose (or prose-y poetry) and share it as part of our 4-5 minute open mic spots!

Our feature for April is the wonderful Stina French! We hope to see you there!
