Victoria Prescott and Chucky BLK

  • Lazarus Brewing Co. 1902 East 6th Street Austin, TX, 78702 United States (map)

LOGOS welcomes two of Austin's premier performance poets / spoken-word artists for a very special evening of poetry, ritual and conversation.

Dynamic poet duo Victoria + Chucky delivered a blistering set at New Story Festival, 2019. Impassioned, energizing, inspired and inspiring — this couple performs synchronized and independent pieces that move, groove, instigate, incite, catch-fire and uplift. We've brought them back for a special *filmed* event that you won't want to miss.

Poet and emcee Charles Dwain Stephens aka Chucky BLK was a member of the 2014 and 2015 Austin Poetry Slam Team, and part of a Group Piece Finalist at the National Poetry Slam. A nationally acclaimed poet, on celebrated EPs "Scorpio SZN" (2018) and "A Prequel To." (2018), Chucky blurs the lines of spoken word and hip hop, channeling a razor sharp wit that can either bust your gut or break your heart. The son of a pastor, Chucky has an electrifying presence both on stage and in the booth that echoes his father’s Sunday fervor, intensity, and passion leaving a lasting impression.

Poet Victoria Prescott, a member of UT's nationally acclaimed Spitshine performance poetry collective, has performed at the Austin Poetry Slam, and throughout central Texas. A staff member for Creative Action, Victoria is a poet and social justice educator, who is focused on how communities can heal through art and stories. She has work published in the Thing Itself, Pressure Gauge Press, Button Poetry, and Write About Now. Victoria bring her passion for language and social action to the slam stage, — and always swaying the hearts, and catalyzing the wisdom, of her listeners.

This will be a LOGOS like no other — full-throttle utterance, and diesel-on-the-fire galvanizing love — that you will not want to miss.
