Poetry Shows and all white parties are an important addition to a having a great summer in Boston. Nothing can compare to relaxing to some live poetry and turning up with your squad right after. Ballot Entertainment (BENT) hosted BENT Friday: Spoken Word Edition + after party on August 12 at Wonder Bar in Allston. BENT is a New England company that specializes in event planning and they are known throughout Boston for hosting the best parties every Friday at Wonder bar.

The Spoken word show was the first event of its kind that BENT organized and it was a great turnout. Chris Andrews, Co- founder of Bent says “Ballot Entertainment has decided to shake up the city of Boston in a POSITIVE way”. The event showcased some of Boston’s most talented poets as well as some musical performances from our local artists. The spoken word artist and musicians they featured were  Cassidie JB, Young Vokal, Jamila, Chris Fame, Samantha Casseus, Trevor, Mr. Yellow , Kenzy Clerdonna , Caleb, Marlene, Jared, Alyssa, Price boys, Andy , Amber , and Theresa. The highlight of the show was The Price Brothers hailing from North Carolina, an acapella group singing a 4 part harmony. The group consist of brothers Robert 17, Jason 16, Erick 15, Derrick 15, and Christopher 13.

While attendees were being serenaded by the artist on stage their taste buds were being spoiled with treats such as cupcakes and cookies from Dollbaby’s Cookies & Creations. It was a unique experience; from the entrainment, the atmosphere and music. For more information on BENT events follow them Instagram: @b.ent_, Twitter: @BallotEnt3 and Facebook: Bent Bent.
