Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

If you're not feeling Senate Bill 1070, there's a nice, high platform for you to share your thoughts.

Tonight, anyone can step up to the mic at The Firehouse's impressive outdoor stage and vent frustrations, express fears, or give a nice one-fingered salute to the controversial Arizona law in the form of a prose poem during SB 1070 Speak Out.

The open mic format is open to anybody so feel free to spit a poem, short story, a song, or whatever else.

In the eyes of Djentrification, who will spin locally-made music, the event "encourages anyone from the community to speak out and/or share ideas or thoughts on strengthening equality in Arizona."

Event details after the jump ...

Tara Lopez will also hit the decks while Andrew Ecker will lead a drumming session at some point. Coffee will be available for purchase.

The shindig starts at 8:30 p.m. at The Firehouse, 1015 North 1st Street. Admission is free. Check out this Facebook event page for more info.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
