Spring 2020 Underground

Dear Readers, 

We recently had another successful Underground Event!

The theme this time around was “What’s Love Got to do With It?”

We gathered around the cozy presentation screen fire with our soft pretzels and hot cider as our emcees Merrick Ramza, Josh Bouie, and Rana Hussain guided the open mic for the night. The performances ranged from readings of poems by their favorite author to musical performances based on their first love/heartbreak. 

At the end of the event, we continued our tradition of a group poem in which each attendee writes down a line and passes the piece of paper to the next person until it reaches everyone in the room. As Merrick read aloud each line, it was admirable to see how engaged each person in the room was: some lines had us burst into laughter, while others had us pondering the emotion behind them.

Overall, we at 30 North want everyone to know how appreciative we are for everyone who stopped by to listen, perform, or connect in any way they could. Please follow us on our social media for posts from this event and updates for next year’s Underground events.
