We just received word that the Tucson Slam Team Fundraiser/performance/dance party featured in City Week has been moved.
Here's that word, from the event organizers:
Okay, y'all know that no poetry event is complete without something going horribly awry, so here it is: Solar Culture Gallery has been temporarily shut down by the fire marshall, and we can't have a show there.
BUT DO NOT DESPAIR.
Instead, we will be performing at the equally cool MAT BEVEL INSTITUTE, located at 530 N. Stone. It's in downtown Tucson, just a short walk from Solar Culture, it houses the Museum of Kinetic Art, and—bonus—it has its own parking! We are HELLA lucky to get this space on such short notice, so come out and help celebrate our good fortune. Same time, same price, and with just as much hot Team Tucson poetry (including never-before-seen pieces) and Sonidero Verbobala dance party!

The Max Bevel Institute
530 N Stone, downtown Tucson
Bring your friends, a chair, and your dancin' shoes. Chair optional.
See you there!
We're not sure about the "Solar Culture Gallery has been temporarily shut down by the fire marshall (sic)" part, as the Solar Culture Web site notes that the Slam Team event has been moved, but still lists other shows as going on.
We recommend calling ahead, and we'll let you know more as we find out more.
