“New York's great storytellers have a lot in common with the city's anthology of superheroes—one-in-a-million rare, celebrated in perpetuum, and usually the product of character-defining experiences that they endured and ultimately came out on top of. The same guy could become Batman or Norman Mailer. You might as well be somebody.”
Deriving their name from hip hop mag XXL's annual new talent issue, the Freshman Class crew returns to Bowery Poetry Club to ring in 2018 by bitching, moaning, praising, and extolling the year ahead in a series of poems, essays, monologues, and freestyle bars.
Hosted by David Potters, featuring David Acosta, Leo Arias, Kaya Fridman, L.H. Gonzalez, Schuyler Quinn, and Kai Williams
