About the event

We're taking HomeBase Poetry on a tour around Arizona. You've been coming to us, so now we are going coming to the people.   We've been in AVONDALE over the last 2 months, so now we want to show some love with a pop-up show in the EAST VALLEY!  

Joining HB as the feature poet for this Labor Day weekend show is none other than Paul Mabon.  For over 20 years, actor and poet Paul Mabon has done all things poetry in Chicago, Memphis and Los Angeles. His television and movie credits include ‘Insecure', ‘Criminal Minds,’ ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine,’ ‘Def Poetry Jam’ and ‘Verses and Flow.’ Currently, Paul plays the character ‘Alan’ in the Progressive Insurance commercial franchise and is a proud Lifetime member of The Actors Studio.

HomeBase Poetry Open Mic is hands down one of the most upscale open mic in the country! Come and get on the mic. Recite and read your poetry and work in front of a supportive and enthusiastic audience. Express all those ideas that you’ve been itching to share, or just listen and watch. Enjoy the family atmosphere that HomeBase Citizens create. Jam out to the songs you miss, that you grew up to, that make you groove whether you want to or not. Close your eyes to live music from the most skillful musicians in the game. Hear poetry that will broaden your horizons, crack you up, and make you think as much as it makes you feel.

Our feature artists come from all over the country to perform for you at HomeBase, as well as from right here in Phoenix! Our dj’s interact with the host and crowd, moving your soul with pure ear candy. Our small business vendors will be there with unique and quality goods, services, and information that you can’t find anywhere else. But the HomeBase crew and the Citizens who have made us their home, are the best thing about us. I mean a room full of positive people with great energy…and looking good at the same time! Make HomeBase Poetry your safe place. Make us your home!

Our doors open 1 hour prior to show start, which gives you a great opportunity to grab some drinks and try some of their multi-year award winning Tennessee-style barbeque see why this restaurant has been featured on Man Fire Food as well as Food Paradise, both on the Cooking Channel.
