Austin Poetry Slam
Tuesday Nights
The United States Art Authority

     The Austin Poetry Slam - a weekly poetry competition held at the United States Art Authority on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. -showcases 12 original spoken-word artists in a no-holds-barred, raucous, energized competition.  Each week puts egos on the line, along with $100 in prize money to the top three poets of the night.
    Five judges randomly selected from the audience give each poet a score on a scale of 0.0 to 10.0.  The scores are tallied at the end of the first performances, and the poets with the higher numbers advance until three poets are left in the final round.
    Audience members are encouraged to cheer for the poets they like and boo the poets they hate. The audience becomes a major factor as they attempt to influence the judges.
    Doors open at 7:30 p.m., and the competition begins at 8 p.m.  Admission is $5 at the door.  ‘
