      Come join the Jeff Robinson Trio at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe in NYC for the
      "Lizard Lounge Poetry Jam at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe". Saturday, June 5th
      from 3-6pm. Featured Poet, Open Mic and accompaniment by the experienced
      poetry band the Jeff Robinson Trio. $7 at the door. This is a monthly
      series, the 1st Saturday of every month from 3-6pm. On June 5th the Featured
      Poet will be Carlos Gomez.

      CARLOS ANDR�S G�MEZ is a political agitator/passion instigator turned
      poetry/spoken word innovator from Philadelphia. He was the 2001 Pronoun
      Showdown Philadelphia Grand Slam Champion, a 2003 Nuyorican Grand Slam
      Finalist, and a member of the 2003 Nuyorican National Slam Team that placed
      2nd out of 63 teams at the 14th Annual National Poetry Slam. He is a member
      of The Excelano Project and the Blackout Arts Collective, featured as one of
      the headline acts on each of their annual tours -- the Beyond Words Tour and
      the Lyrics on Lockdown National Tour. He has been published widely in
      anthologies and other publications and appeared on countless radio and
      television programs, including PBS, WHYY, and MTV. In addition, he has
      shared the stage and opened for a diverse range of well-known musical acts,
      such as Wyclef Jean, Toots and the Maytals, Immortal Technique, The Slip, El
      De Sensei of Artifacts, Maya Azucena, and Reel Big Fish. Over the past few
      years he has made a name for himself internationally, performing all across
      the world -- from Germantown to Germany, Miami to Montreal, Seattle to South
      Africa. In 2002, he released his first complete collection of poetry
      entitled March forth...first. Later this spring, his much-anticipated
      second effort, shades of silence, is scheduled for publication. Recently,
      Carlos was featured alongside Saul Williams on the Def Poetry Jam website

                Come join the Jeff Robinson Trio at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe in NYC
                for the "Lizard Lounge Poetry Jam at the Nuyorican Poets Café".
                Saturday, February 5th from 3-6pm. Featured Poet, Open Mic and
                accompaniment by the experienced poetry band the Jeff Robinson Trio.
                $7 at the door. This is a monthly series, the 1st Saturday of every
                month from 3-6pm. On February 5th the Featured Poet will be Jive
                Poetic.

                From his hometown in Buffalo, NY to London, England JIVE POETIC has
                ignited microphones with humorous wordplay and thought provoking
                verbal display. During a lengthy deliverance of revolutionary
                regression to teen suicide and sex, JIVE POETIC opts to teach the
                masses a lesson in life. His incentive? Watching the reaction of his
                listeners.

                And after winning his first slam in January of 2001, it was
                understood that his audience heard every word he said. Soon, JIVE
                POETIC began to season his art form through feature performances at
                local New York and New Jersey venues earning his stripes as a verbal
                connoisseur after rave performances at the Brooklyn Moon to
                Serengeti Plains. The University of Buffalo graduate would later
                return home to claim Buffalo New York's Grand Slam title in 2002. A
                former member of the internationally recognized Tri-City slam team
                that won "The Cross The Boarder Slam" held in Toronto, Canada.
                Presently JIVE POETIC is a member of the Nuyorican Poetry Café's
                National slam team.

                While his voice is lightened in humor, his topics are heavy.
                Therefore, JIVE POETIC prepares to release his second solo CD "The
                Pain of a Crowded SOLitude" a spoken word production filled with
                sensual images and turmoil through the reflection of social
                acceptance. This Album is a follow up project to his First
                CD "Assault with a Loaded Statement." As a mindful poet, serious
                performer and inquisitive speaker, JIVE POETIC attempts to take his
                listeners in to a mind state beyond the obvious and dares you to
                listen, further.

                    Browne.

                    intensely creative performance poetry scene since early 1998. As a
                    member of the highly regarded safe sex crew, The Punany Poets (as
                    seen on HBO's Real Sex 24 & 26) Mahogany aspires to alert the Hip-

                    Educational Director. Mahogany can also be heard on radio airwaves
                    throughout the country as the femme fatale poetic voice on
                    Hennessy's Poetry Minute.

                    Her past performances include special appearances on CBS' talk shows
                    The Ananda Lewis Show and Iyanla Vanzant Show, while she presently
                    completes her 2002 LadySmyth: Untitled European tour. Ms. Browne has
                    earned the highly-acclaimed title as one of The Nuyorican Poets Café
                    Grand Slam Semi-finalist (2002) in addition to winner of Harlem's
                    phenomenal SugarShack Slam; the Hottest Poets Slam @ Jimmy's Uptown
