Trago on Wednesday nights

Wednesday-night readings at Trago, called Urban Literation, are a casual alternative to the competitive atmosphere of cash-prize spoken-word spots. The atmosphere lets first-time readers feel comfortable and inspires top talents to let down their guards. Several writers, headed by Bonafyde G (Griouard Weddington) and Randi McQuery, founded the event in June 2003 as a sanctuary for purist poets. This dimly lighted, stageless venue, once a hot spot for house-music fans, offers an ideal setting for speakers -- its narrow-corridor layout ensures that everyone in attendance has a prime view. U-Lit's performers read several pieces each, unveiling freshly written material as well as answering calls for familiar favorites, and the artist-heavy audience stays respectfully quiet.
