An Open Mic for Poets, Vocalists, Musicians, & MCs
About this Event

This is our monthly open mic jam session for poets, instrumentalists, vocalists, MCs, and anyone willing to share their art. It’s a space where artists are free to create and not required to be as formal as they are in other venues. At our open mic, artists are encouraged to expand the boundaries of their own expression, and perform with artists they normally wouldn’t, and play, sing, rap, or dance as if no one is watching. Participants will either perform alongside a DJ or a live band.

MEET OUR HOST

Nerd the Poet (@nerdthepoet)

Dominic “Nerd” McDonald also known as Nerd the Poet (@nerdthepoet), is a young Black Entrepreneur and Spoken Word artist from various cities in Los Angeles, California now living in the DC Metro area. He has put his views on growing up in the inner city between two households, Hip Hop music, being a social outcast, college experiences, and more on paper and created everything from screen plays to magazine articles. In January, 2022 he founded Nerd the Poet Productions, a Poetic Event & Consulting company that curates art-share opportunities and recreational entertainment through spoken word.

His passion comes from serving the community, especially through the arts. He is the 2022 winner of the Day 8 Publishing's "DC Poet Project". And currently he is the 2023 DMV Renaissance Awards Best Male Poet. By writing from his heart and what he sees and hears, he hopes to be a “change agent” to the unheard. He plans to travel spreading his creativity and influence to those who may receive his messages as well as manage and mentor others who decide to walk the same path.
