One of our poetry brothers is at the cusp of a lifelong achievement.  Justin Lamb will be in defense of his poetry thesis and he’s invited some of his friends to celebrate and commiserate with him at this week’s Pass it On. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate the birthday weekend of our Co-Founder Marc Lundberg, than with his favorite poet and just the right balance of intellect and ignorance.  Toss in our visual feature Alvin Parker and his unique capture of New Orleans and Pass it On will be headed for another epic weekend. Pass It On is more than an open mic-- its name, a phrase coined by the legendary John Scott and father of one of its co-creators. Instead, it is an experience through which we pass on our culture and our positive spirit through oral, musical, and artistic expression.  Are you ready for the word?
