Vancouver poetry house presents, weekly feature poet, Jason Philosofly who serves his poetry with a side of rap and dash of funk. If you’ve been wanting to add some rhythm and rhyme to your Monday, show up, be shaken.

“If this is a free country, why is everything private property? Why does everything feel like a game of monopoly? Why do our lives revolve around the economy?”

Philosofly is a spoken word artist with a wonderfully weird hip-hop approach to poetry. A member of the 2013 Canadian Festival of Spoken Word Championship team (Toronto Poetry Slam), and winner of 2014 Last Poet Standing, Philosofly has made quite an impact in his short time in the scene. The rapper slash poet is known for his catchy rhythmic delivery and random ass metaphors that somehow end up making sense by the end of the poem. Can we make a poem that compares American Imperialism to Pokemon? Yes We Can!

Some of Philosofly’s music and spoken word performances can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/user/thespursareadynasty 

As always, there will be an open mic and two-round poetry slam, (3 min) where poets accumulate points to qualify for the Van Slam team. As an audience member, or judge, you get a front row seat to all the action (the venue’s not that big)…

Cafe Deux Soleils and the Van Slam strive to be a trans friendly place and a hate speech free zone. Help us with that. We also acknowledge that this event takes place on unceded First Nations Territory.

Also, be kind to our VOLUNTEER door staff. They have to follow BC Liquor Board Rules and once we are sold out we can’t let anyone in unless someone leaves. You cannot save seats for people in line. Let them know if you are leaving. Also no ATM at the door, it’s cash ONLY.

Get there early if you want a seat or want to slam. Before 7pm.
