It’s the summer of slam, folks! As one of the oldest poetry slams in the known universe, the Boston Poetry Slam holds a certain responsibility to deliver high-energy, high-quality slam to you right around this time of year; come celebrate your holiday eve with verbal fireworks on our stage.
We’re excited to welcome slam teams repping the following literary entities:
- Verbal Slap of Connecticut
- The Dirty Gerund of Worcester
- The George Abraham All-Stars (local pick-up team)
- and your very own 2019 Boston Poetry Slam Team!
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 September to catch another team slam. Cover charge is $5 to help raise prize and gas money for the traveling teams.
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.
