All right, Cantabbers: who loves the first snow of the year? A hardy bunch of souls unimpressed by the weather came to hang in our dry little basement this week for a feature from Durham native G(eorge) Yamazawa. G brought us a warm selection of southern sound and promised to be back again! Our slam was a hot one, with some surprise eliminations in the early rounds and a final round with two slammers each gunning for their first win: when the smoke cleared, Dave McKenna had fallen to the talents of Jade Sylvan, who took home the ten dollars and a rousing round of applause.
Next week: Chris August, world slam champion, comes up from DC to knock your face off with poetry. We’ll also have another open slam in the 8×8 series. See you there!
