John Pinkham is a poet from Boston. Apart from creating undrinkable bespoke cocktails at the Cantab Lounge, John was a member of Slam Free or Die’s 2017 National Poetry Slam team. John has published poems, but prefers forgetting about deadlines. Drawing inspiration from his family’s Boston Italian roots, his poems can be paired with a large iced regular from Dunkin’ Donuts and a pizzelle cookie.

This show in our weekly Wednesday series takes place at the Cantab Lounge, 738 Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge. Doors for the show open at 7:15. The open mic begins at 8:00 and the feature performs at approximately 10:00. An open poetry slam in the 8×8 series will follow. The show is 18+ (ID required) and the cover charge is $3.
