You wanted hit slam favorites? You wanted new surprises? You wanted a surreal group piece, heartstring twang after heartstring twang, and a surprise cover to finish the night? You got it, Cantab! Our team brought the fire and the craft to their one-hour set last Wednesday, and we are so proud to have them representing us at this year’s National Poetry Slam. Good luck in Oakland, Mckendy, Marshall, Bobby, Sophia, & Sean!
(Looking to see how the team is doing at Nationals, or to follow your other NorthBEAST favorites? Check out scores.poetryslam.com: the Boston Poetry Slam team bouts in #18 at 7pm PST on Wednesday and in #36 at 9pm PST on Thursday.)
This week, while the team’s away: we’ll hear from the sometimes-playful, sometimes-seriously, always densely thoughtful Jess Rizkallah! And, yes: the night will finish with an open poetry slam, just in time to qualify the winner for the Atlanta-bound 2016 Boston Poetry Slam team.
