We're taking a month off of Slamming in July and bringing you two great features and we're kicking things off with an new friend from Louisville, KY: B. Shatter! His high-energy poetry has been lighting us up lately and we can't wait to see what he does with a full feature! The doors open at 7pm and the poetry starts at 7:30! The open mic is also in full effect!
Brandon "B. Shatter" Harrison is a spoken word artist and educator currently located in Louisville, KY.

Shatter has found a way to take his early slam career training from Texas to new and amazing heights in making a name for himself. He is the creator and host of Kentucky?s largest yearly poetry competition the ?Winter Soul-Spit Slam,?coaches the youth team known as the Young Poets of Louisville, regularly teaches Street Academy, a literacy program for fourth and fifth grade black boys all while continuing to host a variety of slams and nationwide events.
