"The new and the jaded, the talented, the unpublished poet, the indie muse of fresh talent: Find Your Muse Monday Nights 8 PM at the corner of 36th and North Davidson attracts artists that understand the art and the community of sharing. Egos are checked at the door. These artists are the talent of the city." - Wesley Cutlip
