As the nights get longer, poets, so does the Cantab swell with more folks looking to escape the cold world outside! This week saw a full room for a feature by Northampton Jasmin Roberts, who rolled through a nearly all-off-page set of her classic pieces, finishing with a taste of where we hear her work moving. The slam segment of the night began with just one poet looking for the prize: Zeke Russell. In the final hour, seven more poets rushed in to usurp his plans, but only RebeccaLynn came close: the final round, a rematch of pairings past (and surely pairings future), saw Zeke eke out a win over RebeccaLynn for the ten-dollar prize.
Next week: it’s cold, it’s dim, and 2016 has been kicking your butt, but Scott Woods is here to buoy you up! Or, rather, he’ll be here on December 14, a reschedule from his missed show in September, and not a moment too soon. Come laugh, learn, and shift with gleeful discomfort in your seat when Scott takes the stage this coming Wednesday.
