The Power of Words
Words really are powerful, as displayed Sunday night at the Retreat/Rebar space in DUMBO Brooklyn. Some of the most amazingly talented spoken word artists came together to present “The Takeover.” It featured Kesed Ragin, Sciryl (which is lyrics backwards), amongst several other talented artists. The performances really made you think, listen and take everything in. It’s so amazing how spoken word can be expressed through so many different ways and the passion and eloquence in which they do it.
One of the other artists has a show coming up on August 11th at the Bowery Poetry Club(between Houston and Bleecker street), starting at 8:30 PM. RIP MC is going to be recording his live album that night, the price is $10 at the door. The show also features Kesed Ragin, Motion Sickness B-Boy Crew, Jason Reynold’s, and HBO Def Poetry Jam’s Sciryl, Riva and Shanelle Gabrielle.
