Feature booking with the Pittsburgh Poetry Collective and the #SteelCitySlam
Thank you for your interest in booking a feature! The Steel City Slam has been happening since the 1990s and was Pittsburgh’s only PSI registered slam venue. We are conveniently located between Chicago/Columbus and New York/Philly/Baltimore/DC – that is just part of what makes us a great stop on your tour!

About the show:
The #SteelCitySlam and open mic takes place the second and fourth Tuesday night (excepting holiday weeks) at Full Pint Wild Side Pub, 5310 Butler Street in the Upper Lawrenceville neighborhood of Pittsburgh. The 20 minute slam feature pays on a pass-the-hat basis with a minimum of $50. We will buy you dinner at the venue. We will try to help with transportation after you arrive in the city and put you up in the home of a Pittsburgh Poetry Collective board member for a few days and with notice.

Our format intersperses up to 9 competing slam poets with up to 6 open mic performers. Signup sheets go out at 7:45PM exactly, with the show beginning once we get 5 judges (usually around 8:30). The feature set is near the beginning – after any early open mic folks. Then we go into the first round of the slam, after which there will be an intermission wherein people buy your merch! You will also have the opportunity to do the last poem of the night while the host tallies the score of the winner. Please plan accordingly.
