Have You Ever Been Mello?

For the past couple of months, your Mondays have been moody, miserable, and muddled. And more than once, you’ve wondered, “Where have my sexy vibes and happy feelings gone?” You’ve even found yourself in the midtown area, looking for the cool kids who used to run to the Miami club The District for a reprieve from the week that had only just begun. Now you can wipe that malcontent look from your face and bring back that peaceful Mona Lisa smile, because Mello Mondays is back to save you from the blues.

The groove of this spoken word dinner party has moved a little further up north to Bluster (115 N 21st Ave., Hollywood), but besides the place, everything else has remained the same. It’s still the best spot to vibe with an eclectic crowd while the rhythms of hip-hop and the linguistics of poetry float around you. There’s still better-than-bar food for you to nosh on, and you’ll still wash away the madness and end up feeling Mello. HBO Def Poet Asia hosts and local and national artists hit the stage all night — politically conscious rappers Dead Prez just rocked the mic two weeks ago. Tickets start at ten bucks before 10 p.m. Doors open at 8, for tickets call 786-333-9159.
