Front Porch 10 Year Anniversary Edition


The Front Porch is a monthly multi-genre artistic set that began in December 2004 at Mocha Lounge, DC as an attempt to create an open mic & feature space in the nation’s capitol where all kinds of poetry, spoken word, Hip Hop, acoustic, and soul music could be welcomed by people of diverse racial and sexual orientations.

Taking off from his experience growing up with music, stories, and poetry on Front Porches in Arkansas, Tim’m wanted to create a space where people from diverse walks of life could speak about their experience without trepidation of not being a SLAM poet, trying a new song, experimental performance art, erotica, or reading material (from a page) that is personal and/or about spirituality or healing.

In this 10 year anniversary edition show leading up to the December finale, Tim’m and his Front Porch family celebrate Spring with “Here Comes the Sun”, Featuring the return of Nhojj (New York City), C.C. Carter, and B. Damon, plus an amazing open mic from 7:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Acoustic Soul, Hip-Hop, Rhythm & Blues, Poetry.

Followed by a special night of House Music with Campo Alegre from 10pm – 3am. House music all night long.
