BOLO LIVE: A Spoken Word Night

Do You Write?

We want to hear it, and we want to hear it from your mouth.

Don’t Write?

Maybe impress your date by ad-libbing something romantic. Bring a group of friends and peer pressure one of them to share their not-very-secret Notes poetry. Or come to enjoy the Towers Pub Lo-Fi Academia vibes of books on the wall and people warbling poetry in the far corner.

Bolo Live will be a great time, no matter how you slice it.

Location: Towers Pub. Room 6-101, 10700 104 Ave MacEwan University, Edmonton

Time: 6:30-8PM

NOTE: Be respectful. The Bolo Tie Collective does not condone hate speech of any kind, nor do we want to hear your badly-coded softcore erotics and revenge porn. We do classy snapping and bad puns only.
