For the last Wednesday of the year, we knew we had to bring in an absolutely apocalyptic feature… Or post-apocalyptic… Look, whatever: we were lucky Casey Rocheteau was in town! This Whithaus-gone-NYC celebrity shared work all from her latest book, Knocked Up On Yes, available now on Sargent Press. Our Champion of Champions slam was a three-fer, with Jade Sylvan taking the season championship over Sean Patrick Mulroy and Eddy Martinez! However, in the final new-poem Champions round, Jade was taken down by our still-reigning champ, Zanne Langlois. Congrats to Zanne and thanks to everyone for a great night to wrap up 2012.
Next week: we’ll be ringing in the new year with Jon Sands, who’ll bring us both an early-bird workshop and a feature on this special night. We’ll close the evening with the last, last, very last, Last Chance Slam: an open 8-person poetry slam to qualify just one more tryout at the Team Selection Preliminaries on January 9.
