Slamarillo is a group from Amarillo, TX dedicated to sharing spoken word poetry amongst an eclectic audience. We host a monthly slam at The 806 Coffee Shop and Lounge. The 806 also hosts bi-weekly open mic nights for anyone who would like to take the stage. Slamarillo follows standard slam rules, and has attracted multiple types of poets to step on the mic. At any given Slamarillo slam, you could hear a blood curdling, heart crushing break-up poem, as well as an empowering political piece. Our poets range in age, background, and gender, as does the audience. The environment of a Slamarillo slam provides energy and creativity in addition to intense competition.
