Cantab Feature for Wednesday, June 27, 2018: NorthBEAST Regional Team 4×4 Poetry Slam

It’s full-on summertime, folks, which can only mean one thing in the slam world: local teams are ramping up to the National Poetry Slam! Tonight will mark the first of two Nationals-style 4×4 team slams, meaning that we’ll welcome four Nationals-bound slam teams to our virtual cage match for a four-round slam. Teams are still TBA, but, as always, will feature regional favorites, darlings, and rivals from around the New England area, giving locals a little taste of National Poetry Slam competition.

This show will have a slightly shortened open mic and will sell out quickly, so we advise arriving for door time at 7:15 to catch a seat… Otherwise, you’ll be waiting until July 18 for the summer’s only other team slam. Cover charge is $5 to help raise funds for our team to travel to Nationals in Chicago this August!

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 slam begins at approximately 10:00. The show is 18+ (ID required) and the cover charge is $5.
