Like many reality shows, contestants will be forced to make a masterpiece while racing against the clock, but in this case audience members are the judges and the work of art is poetry. Beat poet Allen Ginsberg believed that the first thought was the best thought and, following that thread, local writers will be challenged to come up with an insta-poem inspired by the artwork on display at RockStar Gallery. Unleash your inner critic and decide how well they channeled the essence of the paintings, if the poem has legs, and help declare the winner during Spontaneous Combustion: An Art Show with Ekphrastic Poetry. 7 to 9:30 p.m. May 20. 5700 Northwest Central #160. For information, call 832-868-0242 or visit stateoftheartshows.com/rockstar-artgallery. Free.
