Cantab Recap for Wednesday, January 11, 2012

It’s been a great 2012 so far, folks; Scott Beal rocked his feature slot last night with a superb array of humor and tragedy, storytelling and surreality, all of it read and performed ultra-satisfactorily. A few open slots in the slam didn’t stop five folks from getting down to business, though; Kevin Spak took a hard-earned victory over Nora Meiners, securing the last spot in next week’s slam.

Wait, is it time for the World Qualifier Semi-Finals already? Dang, we’ve got eighteen poets qualified for this thing! Next week, whoever steps up will slam off in a grand two-round slam with 2- and 1-minute poems. This is always a fun show with unusual work: remember that the cover charge is $5 for this night to help raise money for our representative to IWPS.
