The next Breadline 7.20.11 Youth Focus

From Alex Bleecker:

yes, this means we’ll be marrying off minors, so if you’ve got one of your own that you’d like to get rid of, bring some dowry money and we’ll take it from there.  it also means we’ll be featuring some of the most talented performers under 20 years old in the seattle area!  this should be one of our biggest, youngest breadlines yet, so come early & come often, especially if you want a seat / spot on the open mic, which we anticipate will be full by 7:30.  see you in it!

featuring:
youth speaks poets
gibson collins & troy osaki (spoken word)
the rue (music)
britta johnson (video)
