Word Ninjas (est. September 2008) is the Rockstar Storytellers monthly open mic night, taking place the second Tuesday of every month at Kieran’s Irish Pub in downtown Minneapolis. Sign-up begins at 8pm, and the show starts at 8:30pm. Suggested $3 donation at the door.
In true open mic fashion, everyone who signs up gets 5 minutes to do… whatever they want! Unjuried, uncensored (within reason, people) and unpredictable. Stand-up, slam poetry, storytelling, traditional poetry, folk tales, monologue, literary readings — if words are your weapon, we want you on our stage.
Each show is hosted by one of our very own Rockstar Storytellers, and another Rockstar typically does a feature set somewhere in the line-up. Word Ninjas also features special touring guests and the occasional surprise local celebrity! (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.)
Kieran’s is located in downtown Minneapolis at Block E, near Target Center (the basketball arena) and Target Field (the baseball park). And not too far from a Target store either, in case you need Q-Tips. Here’s a map.
