Cantab Feature for Wednesday, August 9, 2017: Champion of Champions Poetry Slam

Tonight marks the final night in our current 8×8 poetry slam series! What does that mean? It means the eight slam winners from the current slam series will slam off against one another, all competing for the opportunity to take the Season Champion crown and a $50 prize.

But wait, there’s more: once the season champ is crowned, they’ll have the opportunity to let their winnings ride and challenge the reigning Champion of Champions in a one-poem, ALL NEW WORK round! The event will be hosted by Kieran Collier and we’ll need five steady judges to volunteer their poetic opinions from the audience.

Our current reigning champion, RebeccaLynn, wrested the title from Kylie Noelle back in the spring. Who will rise from the pool to take on the mantle of new challenger? Will the title change hands, or will our current champ reign supreme?

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 Champions of Champions Slam in the 8×8 slam series will begin at approximately 10:00. The show is 18+ (ID required) and the cover charge is $3.
