Word UP


Do you like words? I mean really, really like them? Do you like to rapturously bathe in them, awash in their voluminosity? Then, maaaaaan, do we ever got something for you. It's called Say What?: A Spoken Word Event, and it's happening at Studio@620 during the last half of April. The verbiage starts at 8 p.m. Friday with an open mic and a bevy of featured poets, hosted by Pedro Jarquin and Jeffrey James. The Nicaragua-born Pedro has "walked miles with the broken glass of shattered dreams in his shoes." The program resumes at 1 p.m. Saturday with a young persons spoken word program, and then at 8 p.m. with a Native-American program featuring poetry, paintings and storytelling with Gabriel Horn and his son, Carises. It all picks up again the following weekend. Say What?: A Spoken Word Event, starts Fri., April 14, Studio@620, 620 First Ave. S., St. Petersburg, 727-895-6620, $5-$10, [email protected].
