The first week of the month is always a party at the Boston Poetry Slam, folks: this week we got to enjoy Jared Singer at the Cantab on Wednesday, plus Krysten Hill at Moonlighting on Thursday. Welcome YAWKtober indeed (h/t Mckendy)! Our Cantab slam this week was a doozy, with four poets fighting for the sixth spot in the upcoming Champion of Champions slam later this month: bartender Bobby Crawford eventually got the better of bar patron Nora Meiners, earning himself a ten-dollar tip and a shot at the championship on October 21.
Next Wednesday: we’re back with L.A. poet Jeremy Radin, as well as a sweet spotlight from touring NOLA artist Beck Cooper. We’ll also hold the seventh slam in the current 8×8 series.
