This night will mark the Cantab’s last show before the 2014 National Poetry Slam, when we send off the 2014 Boston Poetry Slam team to compete for a week in Oakland, California! Janae Johnson, Omoizele Okoawo, Sean Patrick Mulroy, Meaghan Ford, and Melissa Newman-Evans will present an extended feature full of all the hits, future favorites, and rare-for-a-reason B-sides before hopping a plane to the other side of the country. Awesome!

A slightly shortened open mic begins at 8:00 and the extended feature begins at approximately 10:00. (No open slam tonight.) The show is 18+ (ID required) and the cover charge is $5.
