Start your weekend by checking out spoken word artist Buddy Wakefield at The Crux tonight. Wakefield has been featured on HBO's Def Poetry Jam
, the BBC and NPR, and currently has a home on Ani DiFranco's record label, Righteous Babe Records. He was also the champion at the 2004 Individual World Poetry Slam Finals. It's safe to say you can learn a thing or two from Wakefield, so bring a pen and paper in case inspiration strikes. DJ Suite Love will provide tunes after the show.
9 p.m. FREE. The Crux, 1022 W. Main St., Boise, facebook.com/thecruxcoffeeshop.
