Cantab Recap for Wednesday, December 7, 2016

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.
