Cantabbers, if you’re reading this, then you survived Valentine’s Day! Congratulations to everyone, especially to those who also survived our Erotic Poetry Night. Turns out that this was no small feat, actually: our feature that night was Kevin Spak‘s brainchild, the Love Vs. Death slam. In this seven-round head-to-head featuring a murderer’s row of high-quality slammers, Love took an early lead and looked as though it would conquer it all! However, Death’s slow-but-steady philosophy actually took the win in the very last round, with a tight score of 4-3. Our thanks to all the talented folks who slammed, as well as the brave folks who elected to judge and choose between Romantic Certainty and Utmost Doom.
Next week: we welcome open mic regular Wes Hazard to the stage! Perhaps best known in Boston as a stand-up-guy stand-up comic, Wes has also found a solid following for his more serious work here at the Cantab’s open mic. Wes’ feature slot will be followed by an open speed slam in the 8×8 series.
