We had a packed house last night for Franny Choi, with folks jammed in shoulder to shoulder just to catch a glimpse of this National Poetry Slam and Women of the World Poetry Slam Finalist! Franny didn’t disappoint, either, bringing us a set that included some of the classics we’d hoped for and a few personal poems we didn’t expect. Thanks, Franny! Our slam was a wild one, with Adam Stone taking the top spot over Lauren, securing the big ten dollars and a spot in tryouts for the 2013 Boston Poetry Slam team.
Next week: we’re back with old-schooler-gone-new-schooler Tom Slavin features. Tom has come back to us on the open mic after a long break and we are excited to get a chance to hear a body of his work! Tom’s set will be followed by another open poetry slam in the 8×8 series.
