Whaam Slam

Please note: This event has already occurred.
Busboys and Poets hosts a poetry slam with an artsy theme: The Roy Lichtenstein retrospective at the National Gallery of Art. Ten poets will battle, but they will have to look to the pop artist for inspiration in the first two rounds. Round 1 must be inspired by one Lichtenstein's works, and a haiku round will challenge the poets to use one of the pop artist's classic comics-inspired interjections.
