javon ft. @ #southsideopenmic

Javon is a software developer by trade and a poet by heart. A proud graduate of NC A&T (yes that band from “Drumline” -_-), he moved to McKinney, TX shortly after graduating. College is where he first started performing outside of his church. While in school he took as many writing and poetry classes as his tech filled schedule would allow. He was also able to spit and compete in cities all over North Carolina as well as in DC, Tennessee, and Atlanta. His very first poem was written at the age of thirteen when his youth minister forced him to write one for his church. Before poetry, he wrote rap lyrics and short stories; continuously trying to find a way to provide advice, hope, and encouragement in a way he thought others would find more creative than lecturing. His first feature performance in the DFW area was @ South Side Open Mic – Community Voice about a year ago. He has since toured several cities in Texas and is a member of 2015 DallasPoetrySlam.com Team. Javon was nominated for New Up and Coming Male Artist in the 2015 North Texas Spoken Word Awards. The release of his book of erotic poetry, Fingertip Foreplay is currently pending. Don’t miss Javon and all who bless the mic this sunday night 7pm 3100 grand ave followed by the blues palace show band! $5 admission, byob (beer/wine/mixers available for purchase) for more information contact Annika Michelle 682.667.5164 xo
