Slick Vic Low, the MC and poet also known as Lyrical Leviathan, Slangston Hughes, or Thelonious Coltrane, announced this week that he'd be retiring from performing, with one final show on April 23rd at Warm Wednesdays @ 5 Seasons, and is also appearing tonight, April 19th, at The Art Of Conversation @ the Yabba Pot. And just a couple days after he made that announcement, he showed up at the Word War 1 poetry slam at 5 Seasons last night, and ended up taking home the top prize. That's a hell out of a way to go out, congratulations to him. I'll have a full report on Word War up on Noise probably on Monday.
