Guest Host for March Slam

Vic Slam Master Missie Peters is off performing in the Berlin International Improv Festival, so we've asked Tongues of Fire Artistic Director and 2009 Slam Team member Skawt Chonzz to host the Slam.

If you were there at the February Slam where he threw down the most sacrilegious sacrificial poem yet - you'll know the man has chops. It'll be a slam to remember, for sure.

And remember - we only have 12 spots - sign up starts at 7:30. First 5 spots are guaranteed, the rest are by random draw. See you at the slam!
