Ensley Jazz House. There is no sign out front and you won’t find it on google maps, because this is a pop up housed in an office building.
(Plus, I just downloaded the WordPress app on my phone, so I can blog live! Ignore the typos.You have no idea how many posts never made it this far.)
Guided by the whitty humor of Voice Porter, known around town as the MC of Bards and Brews, the space had a true soulful, homegrown feeling. He opens by asking us what we would do if we owned the stars.
The room fills to standing room only and volunteers go across the street to borrow chairs.
Through the night, the air fills with the sweet sounds of poetry, music, and dance- evoking every feeling imaginable.
I might even spit something…If the spirit moves me.
Don’t worry if you missed it. Jazz house poetry happens every 3rd Thursday at 6111 9th Street Ensley at 7pm. Add Voice Porter on Facebook for more details.
Are you ready for the next performer? Say Yeaaaaaah.
Until next time….
Keep flowing Bham.
