CATCH ISIS STORM, FROM PROVIDENCE TO WASHINGTON, DC…
MONDAY, AUGUST 1, 2011:  Jobs with Justice Fundraiser: feat. Isis Storm, Marlon Carey, Yunus Quddus, 7 PM-11 PM, The Spot Underground, 15 Elbow Street, Providence, RI.
This is the last MondaySLAM before we kick off the new Slam season & start picking our team, so we’re trying to do it up BIG & do something BIG with it.

Jobs with Justice is a non-profit organization building a strong, progressive labor movement that works in coalition with community, faith, and student organizations to build a broader global movement for economic and social justice; they are fighting for workers’ rights, economic justice, and a sustainable global economy.

We want to help; so do the women of Isis Storm. That’s why we’ve teamed up to do this special fundraiser for the organization, as they prep for their national convention later this week, which includes performances by Isis Storm! To launch things, expect the fabulous work of Isis Storm members Jessica “Nine Names” Coulter and Noel Patoine, who’ll be your features along with the phenomenal poet/rapper/singer/songwri ter Marlon “Inphynit” Carey & the stupendous Yunus “The One” Quddus (well, everyone else had a stage name in quotes, so …)! Also, expect a donation jar at the merchandise table.

Of course, the amazing DJ Reza Wreckage (Isis Storm’s other co-founder) will be on the 1s & 2s for us, as she is every show, Jay Walker will be hosting as usual, plus the cash Slam & open mic we have every show (did you read the note about the new levels of cash prizes?)! This will be off the freakin’ chain, all for the low, low price of $3!

Don’t forget our amazing “bring 10 friends” deal: free cover & a free pizza! We’re just bringing you all sorts of sweetness! Don’t miss out on the fun!
