      Poboys & Poets Knoxville

      Poboys & Poets is spoken word open mic event that happens once a month, every last Saturday, at The Pilot Light. Fused with live music (or DJ Selected Playlist) and often a featured guest artist (either a touring poetry slam champion or a live musical act); Poboys provides a powerful evening of talent and fun for all involved.

      Founded by Joseph 'Black Atticus' Woods and hosted by Ryan Andrews, Poboys and Poets' energy stands somewhere between the focus of a good writer's night book read and the electricity of a poetry slam bout; where new voices are just as welcome as those who dabble in advanced levels lyricism. Audience members can expect to experience a gambit of reasons to laugh, think, remember, and listen.

      The Pilot Light does not allow pets. If patrons are under 18 they must be accompanied by an adult. Poboys and Poets is a freedom of speech event (with common sense HIGHLY suggested)however, poetry may or may not be 'kid friendly' - Parental Guidance Suggested.
