Ratpack Slim Bests the Rest
Saturday night I went back to the poetry festival at Highways Performance Space in Santa Monica. The first act was Ratpack Slim, a poet that performed with Joshua Silverstein, an amazingly talented beat boxer. It was the first time I had heard of these guys. I was really impressed. I wish they had more time to perform, because none of the acts that followed were as enjoyable. Slim announced that he and Joshua host an open mike night called Green every Monday in Culver City. I am definitely going to check it out. I have always been impressed by really good beat boxers and Joshua was awesome.
