Mother Tongue's annual anti-Valentine's Day Slam to benefit RAINN will take place on Wednesday, February 16, 2005 at 8:30 pm at The Black Cat, located on 1811 14th St., NW in Washington, DC. Admission is $7 and proceeds will benefit RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network). Tickets will be available at the door. During this event, Spoken Word artists recite their bittersweet poetry on why Valentine's Day is better left uncelebrated. Thanks to Patty Bruno and Richard Handal for telling me about this.
