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 the tail end of summer with poetic hijinks and literary late-season blooms.
We’re excited to welcome slam teams repping the Mill City Slam from Lowell, the Endopolis Poetry Room of Northampton, a fabulous foursome of Cantab open mic all-stars, and your very own 2019 Boston Poetry Slam Team! The show will by hosted by the eminently energetic Myles Taylor.
Tonight’s show is part of our Back to School series, offering an early-bird workshop every week in September before doors open for the open mic! Click here for more information on a performance workshop exploring storytelling of the body through movement and sound with NPS Finalist Ashley Davis.
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. 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.
