BEST SPOKEN-WORD ACT 

Mz Angela Roux

Critics' Choice

The spoken-word scene is blowing up in Kansas City. (And with Chicago slam standby Louder Than a Bomb coming to KC next spring, the explosion couldn't be better timed.) We chalk some of that up to Mz Angela Roux, the occasional host of Poetic Underground, the Uptown Arts Bar's open-mic series. She does more than flow, as she demonstrated in her standing-room-only show at this summer's KC Fringe Festival. Girl can belt. We're still reeling from her mash-ups of fast rhymes and her stunning voice, especially in "Trayvon's Blues," a hard-edged, Skittles-inspired slam that brought a roomful of white suburbanites to their feet.
