Long awaited is the posting of this video. Wait no more! The infamous Brian Omni Dillon graced the stage of the The Fridge DC in November. I was there to capture this passionate, sometimes vulgar, sometimes uplifting, sometimes depressing but always amazing slam. From his site,

Brian Dillon is a performance poet, author, educator, and organizer from New York City. Currently a professor of performance poetry at NYU’s Gallatin School, he is also the 4th ranked slam poet in the world and a writer-in-residence at the Nuyorican Poet’s Cafe. In 2011 Brian finished in second place alongside his Nuyorican teammates at the National Poetry Slam. His debut novel “Eat The Rich” will be published in the winter of 2011 by DefWords Press. He has served as a guest host and featured poet on the world renowned Indiefeed performance poetry podcast numerous times. In his free-time, Brian is an aficionado of youth ice hockey, designer lighting, and bad music..

Thanks for sharing with us Brian!
