Fighting Words 

By bringing the KConsciousness SLAM series to Lawrence, organizer Sara Glass (aka Miss Conception) is issuing a challenge to the college town. This evening's poetry reading at the Jazzhaus (926-1/2 Massachusetts, 785-749-3320) is meant to "show Lawrence a thing or two about the art of the word," according to a KConsciousness press release. Glass went further in an e-mail: "Lawrence is wonderful, artistic, creative and expressive, but compared to Kansas City's energy, Lawrence seems to be holding back. It's not that Lawrence [poets] CAN'T, they just aren't." Lawrencians can make up their own minds when the SLAM-series poets take the stage at 9 p.m. Glass promises "energy, movement, emotion, love, anger and intensity," rather than "one dude reading monotonously from his notebook." Admission costs $4.
