We come to the close of our summer of slam with the last of our three Nationals-style 4×4 matches– four teams in four rounds, the ultimate balanced format for a poetry battle of strategy, emotion, and wits. This final shot for the venue team to practice for competition at the 2016 National Poetry slam will feature three other local teams, and of course include your home team.

This third and final summertime 4×4 will pit four Nationals-bound teams against one another, including:

This show will have a slightly shortened open mic and will sell out in exactly two hot seconds, people, so we advise arriving for door time at 7:15 if you want to get in to catch the show… This will be the LAST 4×4 we’ve booked for the summer. Cover charge is $5 to help raise funds for our team to travel to Nationals in Decatur this August!

This show in our weekly Wednesday series takes place at the Cantab Lounge, 738 Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge. Doors for the show open at 7:15. The open mic begins at 8:00 and the slam begins at approximately 10:00. The show is 18+ (ID required) and the cover charge is $5.
