Metro-Rhyme Off

Perfect your comedic chops. Fine-tune your rhythm and rhyme. Sharpen your literary arsenal, area poets. The ringmaster waits. Linguistic smackdown--with words and vague symbolism replacing oiled muscles, mustaches and stretched spandex--will ensue at the Pub at UTD to determine the poetry champion of DFW: Dallas vs. Fort Worth. DJs, bands and urban theatrics will set the tone for the battle, which commences at 10 p.m. Thursday. Admission is free. Visit
Thu., April 16, 10 p.m., 2009
KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
