Denver, CO: Spoken Word Artist Marc Marcel to Perform!

31 Aug

As seen on Jimmy Kimmel Live, one of my fav spoken word artists, Marc Marcel, is performing in Denver, Colorado!

Date:

Sunday Sept. 2, 2012

Time:

8:00pm

Where:

The Mercury Cafe

2199 California St.

Denver, CO 80205

Not only have I seen this artist perform live in person, I have spoken with him. It is always awesome when talented artists like himself are down-to-earth enough to talk with the members of their audience one-on-one before and after the show — for more than 2 seconds. I absolutely love his work all on its own, but his tangibility amplifies his fan affinity. I have no doubt that you will be amazed by his mentally twisting, intricate, and enrapturing work too! His reputation precedes him in the spoken word community. To read more about him, click here. Share & enjoy!
