Spoken Word Artist Rudy Francisco

The Space Bar Cafe & Wine Bistro welcomes poets and musicians to the open mic that is also shared by a feature. July's feature is San Diego spoken word treasure Rudy Francisco. There is no cover. The Spacebar offers a deli that includes everything from pizza to smoothies and everything in between.

Rudy Francisco has shared stages with prominent artists such as Gladys Knight, Jordin Sparks, Musiq Soul Child, and Jill Scott. From the time he was a guest poet in Juvenile Hall until Rudy competed in domestic and international poetry slam competitions, Mr. Francisco had the honor of being nominated for an NAACP Image Award. Ultimately, Rudy's goal is to continue to assist others in harnessing their creativity while cultivating his own. Rudy Francisco is the 2009 National Underground Poetry Slam Champion, 2010 Individual World Poetry Slam Champion and appeared on TV One’s “Verses and Flow” As the captain of the 2017 San Diego Slam team Rudy led his team to first place among 80 teams at the Nationals in Denver, Colorado.
