Later tonight, Tuesday, November 13th, the Right Side Up Poets will present “Talking to Strangers: An Evening of Spoken Word.”

Right Side Up came together after members took UCSB Professor Kip Fulbeck’s spoken word class. Quarter after quarter, students pack the aisles of UCSB theaters and often have to be turned away because there are simply not enough seats for the enthusiastic response to Fulbeck’s talented pupils and their array of witty, passionate, and inspiring performances.

Tonight, they’re taking their show on the road – to SOhO in downtown Santa Barbara.

On Monday’s edition of “The Freak Power Ticket,” producer/host Ted Coe invited four members of the RSU collective – Demi Anter, Mel Rosenberg, Alison Green, and Ryan Yamamoto – into the KCSB studios to perform four original pieces and to discuss the craft and inspiration of spoken-word performance in our community.
