We had a special treat for the last Wednesday of the year folks: Champion of Champions Adam Stone slammed off against challenger (and SlamMaster) Simone Beaubien in a best-of-seven title match! A remarkable open mic crowd was on hand to watch, including a few much-missed travelers back from college, and a few all-stars visiting for Christmas. Trevor Byrne-Smith stopped in from Denver, bow-tie and all, to host the competition. Oh, the winner? Simone over Adam in six rounds.
Contrary to popular rumor (who started that, anyway?), this is NOT the last Champion of Champions match at the Cantab. However, our format will be changing: you can get all the details here on our snazzy new website.
Our next show will be the annual demo slams at Boston’s First Night! Come on out to the Hynes Convention Center in room 208 to see us any time between 7:30 and 11:00. We’ll be back at the Cantab next Wednesday with 2011 Women of the World Poetry Slam Champion Theresa Davis, plus an open slam in the new 8×8 series.
