Although it’s not polite to say “We told you so!” we’re sayin’ it anyway!

This past 1st Wednesday at “Mad Swirl featuring… Justin Booth” was absolutely everything we’d hyped and hoped it would be…and MORE! Justin’s outlaw poetry grabbed us by the b@lls and made us longing for more! Huge THANKS to the Justin for trekking our way from Lil Rock!

And big ol’ thanks to all who came to Absinthe Lounge to appreciate & participate in our mic madness. Each and every one of you Mad Ones out there made last night one of THE best in recent memory.

Thanks to ALL the wonderful poets and musicians who shared their words, their verses and their fine light with us. t’was a fine night to be alive and in our Mad Swirl world. In case you missed this Mad action, here is the line-up of who was who…

HUGE thanks to Swirve (Chris Curiel and Gerard Bendiks) for keeping the beat til the wee hours of the night. We got taken to another dimension of time and space on the wings of their jazzy madness!

And as always, big THANKS to the patron saint of the loco local mad ones, Kevin, owner of Absinthe Lounge.

And finally we would like to thank ALL of you who freely shared their hand claps, finger-snaps, hoots and howls with all the mad ones who got up on this sacred mad swirlin’ mic.

We look forward to all the m-adventures to come! Stay tuned…
