PoetryView – The Ill List

Ill List Poetry Slam
One of the most amazing nights of the year turns 15! Yes, the Ill List, where poets from all over the USA converge to go head to head in verbal poetry combat at the State Theatre produced by Sam Pierstorff and Ruhi Sheikh is an annual sold-out success and the creativity that is delivered is amazing. Set in two rounds, the poems are judged by audience members and the winner takes home some big cash. ModestoView and Sierra Pacific Warehouse Group are the title sponsors again this year, and we are proud to help bring this amazing night and thank Sam and Ruhi for making this happen. We can’t wait to see our annual commercial. This is sold out so don’t lose your tickets and beware of scalpers.
