Over the years Houston has become home base for poets far and wide, showcasing their talent and supporting the world of spoken-word poetry. And while local poetry slams where wordslingers go head-to-head onstage are nothing new, the battle royal, group-style slam format is taking place here for the first time. It requires verbal dexterity, timing and the bringing together of different poetry styles. The 1st Annual Bayou City Poetry Group Slam features 20 of the A-list poets who have touched national stages, and the team that wins gets a cash prize. “A group slam takes a lot of work, the writing and performance, because basically they are writing and performing the poems together,” explains organizer and slam show creator Savannah Blue.

7 to 10 p.m. July 13. Indigo at Midtown, 2117 Chenevert. For information, call 832-396-9547 or visit bayoucitypoetryslam.org. $5 to $10.
