HOLY CANNOLI GUYS!!! THE BIG FIVE OOOOOH!
It may be a bit coo-coo to consider but yr pals at the SBB have been pulling these nights together for FIVE YEARS now. That's somethin' somethin' to celebrate!!!

This event has evolved so much since it's humble beginnings and we're proud of what it's become!!! AND freakin' EXCITED 'bout where we R headed!!!
****As much as life gets out of control, it's nice to know there's a place to be every 2nd Wednesday of the month.****
WE LOVE YOU.
Come celebrate and bring words to share!!!
ALSO RUMOUR HAS IT THERE MAY BE A CAKE AND SOME VERY, VERY LIMITED EDITION MERCH UP FOR GRABS!!!
ALSO ALSO THIS IS THE LAST BOOM BOOM BEFORE OUR SUMMER HIATUS. ITS NOW OR NEVER!!!
FEATURED THIS MONTH ~
Tess Liem's debut collection of poetry is «Obits.» (Fall 2018). She is the author of the chapbook «Tell everybody I say hi,» and the managing editor of carte blanche.
open mic to follow! All are welcome! reminder: u can read someone else's work with credit!!!
The Sophisticated Boom Boom is PWYC, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. We're p scrappy so even a dollar or a quarter helps us out.
This event may be recorded for a future project.
Note on Accessibility: This Sophisticated Boom Boom takes place in a bar. We now have ramps for the step up from street level, and into the backroom. There’s a flight of stairs down to washrooms, which are gendered.
Questions — send 'em our way!
