They’re not beats, they’re not lead singers of famous bands, their stuff doesn’t win slams. The “In Your Ear” series at DCAC features poets who “are usually excluded from spoken word scenes,” says series co-organizer Heather Fuller. But unlike those elitist slam teams, “In Your Ear” strives to embrace many types of aural artists while leaving room for innovation. Fuller describes innovative poetry as that which “eludes the normative, conventional [style] and resists a single narrative.” Translation? The work you hear may be weird or may not—but it won’t be the same old stuff. Asit Sharma, Lucy Jilka, and Chris Myers will read their work at 3 p.m. at the District of Columbia Arts Center, 2438 18th St. NW. $3. (202) 462-7833. (Holly Bass)
