ARTS Pick: Verbs & Vibes

Roscoe B is a decidedly forthright individual with an artisanal approach to telling it like it is. The Richmond native, born Douglas Powell and self-anointed Roscoe Burnems, looms as a local spoken-word giant, crushing open mic nights and blowing up poetry slams around the area for the last three years. As a card-carrying member of Slam Richmond, he aided his hometown team in landing an impressive top 10 spot at this year’s National Poetry Slam. The hip-hop inspired wordsmith gets things off his chest as part of the Verbs & Vibes series.

Thursday 10/4 $5, 7pm. Para Coffee, 19 Elliewood Ave. 293-4412.
