PuroSlam presents Berkeley Slam Poet Christian Drake

Release Date: 2008-12-10

PuroSlam presents wordslinger Christian Drake, the 2008 Berkeley Grand Slam Champion and four-time National Slam semifinalist. Drake is the world’s only “eco-billy” poet — a little environmentalism, a little rock ’n’ roll — and often infuses the wordplay with his own botanical, ecologic, and political knowledge. As co-host of the infamous (and psychotic) Tourettes Without Regrets show, he mixes blood ’n’ guts humor and political battle cries with contemplative, spiritual imagery. $3, 9:30pm, Atomix, 1902 McCullough, (210) 733-3855.
