The calendar year is drawing to a close, folks, and you know what that means… Cold nights, old memories, and fresh new shows from your favorite locals! Outgoing Boston Poetry Slam Team member Marshall Gillson featured for us this past week with a really excellent set, showing all his strengths and a few of his influences. The slam was an inspired six-some, coming down to Emerson College coach Bobby Crawford up against Northeastern captain Austin Hendricks. Bobby took the win, the ten bucks, and, yes, the chance to compete in the upcoming Champion of Champions slam on December 30.
Next week: we’re back for a bright December night featuring Breakbeat poet and Harvard grad José Olivarez. We’ll also hold the seventh open poetry slam in the 8×8 series. See you there!
