The slam is the longest-running spoken word throwdown in town, with a dozen poets on the mic throwing down for $100 in cash prizes. Hosted by Austin Slammaster Mike Henry and judged by five randomly selected members of the audience, anyone can get down as part of the show, simply by signing up at the venue.

Before, during, and after the show, Substance will move both your mind and your booty. Mainstays Eyeone and Metranohm join DJ Digg and special guests like Jesse Brede, Dirk Diggla, and many more to come. The title for this show is Straight From the Top of the Game … and that’s what it’s about. DJs and live musicians creating mashups on the fly … lyrical spoken word battles that range from the hilarious to the sublime … and you never know what’s next. Not for the crowd that just wants to shake that ass on 6th Street. All about the folks that want to get down, have a hell of a good time, and also be able to appreciate the action ripping the mic and rocking the house. No cover after 9:30 pm. Five bucks before that to kick prize money to the poets. Drink specials.

More info:

Sean Michael Leonard Anderson (born March 25, 1988) is an American hip hop artist who primarily goes by the stage name Big Sean. He was born in Santa Monica, California and moved to the Detroit, Michigan area at two months of age. Sean signed with Kanye West's GOOD Music in 2007, and then in 2008 signed with Island Def Jam. He has been featured in The Source and the Detroit Metro Times.[1]

Sean was raised by his mother, where he would grow up with his little cousins Justin Primus and Gregg Pluta in Southwest Detroit.[2] In his early childhood Sean attended Detroit Waldorf School for the arts. After eighth grade, Sean attended Cass Technical High School. He later met Sean Menifee, an older teen who mentored him after recognizing his wordplay skills. Since Sean was much smaller than his mentor, many called him "Big Sean" when reffering to him as an ironic joke. In his later years in high school, Sean gained a valuable relationship with Detroit hip hop station 102.7 FM; he would show his rhyming skills on a weekly basis as part of a rap battle contest held by the station.[3]

More info:

Devin Copeland (born June 4, 1970), better known by his stage name, Devin the Dude, is a Houston hip hop artist. He is best known for his unique rapping style, his long career signed to Rap-A-Lot Records, and his 2002 song "Lacville '79". His relationship with the fans has made him a huge underground hit. Although he almost never makes it to the stage on time, he is always willing to share his many swishas & squares with the crowd.

Devin Copeland started out as a member of the Odd Squad, later known as the Coughee Brothaz, a group of rappers signed to Rap-A-Lot Records. The label is notable for being the home of hip-hop artists such as Geto Boys, Scarface, and Too Much Trouble. Devin Copeland moved on to become part of Scarface's Facemob, before going solo in 1998.[1] Copeland has released six solo albums: The Dude (1998), Just Tryin' ta Live (2002), To tha X-Treme (2004), Waitin' to Inhale (2007), Landing Gear (2008), and Suite 420 (2010). He also made a number of guest appearances, including on Dr. Dre's "Fuck You" in 1999, and De La Soul's "Baby Phat" in 2001.[1]

In 2008, he ended his 15 year relationship with Houston based Rap-A-Lot Records because the label failed to renew his contract.[2] Later that year, he signed with indie label Razor & Tie.[3] Devin is currently being distributed by E1 Entertainment, formerly Koch.
