Cantab Recap for Wednesday, August 9, 2017

Cantabbers! It’s now the third week of August, the end of the National Poetry Slam season and almost time for the venue to start filling up with wide-eyed out-of-towners, fresh from their first classes of the semester. Don’t worry, though, some things are consistent as always: this past week, our featured event was the Champion of Champions Slam, where reigning champ RebeccaLynn defeated newly crowned season challenger Anna Binkovitz to retain her prestigious title. RebeccaLynn will be back to defend her title on October 18, as well as for a full feature late in the calendar year.

This Wednesday: our 2017 Boston Poetry Slam Team, the venue’s first-ever Group Piece Finalists, will return from the National Poetry Slam to our open mic and open slam. Right in the heart of the night we’ll have storyteller-poet Emily Duggan in one of her last shows in New England. See you there!
