Can it be? The Harry Potter books are old enough to have been coming to the Cantab for at least two years? Come celebrate the 20th anniversary of the J.K. Rowling favorites with a slam at the Cantab. Four teams will slam off for House points and glory (obvs): Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin.
Our roster is now complete! Thanks (and good luck) to all these poets who have promised to produce a new poem on theme or in persona for their House, to be scored in an even more irrelevant way than usual. Announcing our slammers:
|Capt. Jordan Peterson||Capt. Cassandra de Alba||Capt. Zeke Russell||Capt. Catherine Weiss|
|Claudia Wilson||Kieran Collier||Anna Binkovitz||Joshua Elbaum|
|Lip McDonald||Myles Taylor||Jackie Perry||Leah Rose|
|Meaghan Ford||Kayti Lahsaiezadeh||Sam Rush||Dawn Gabriel|
|Chloé Cunha||Sophia Holtz||Sam Mercer||Shannon Mckenzie|
|Sacrifices: Nathan Comstock, John Pinkham|
Our open mic will also welcome anyone writing to the HP theme, including costumes and props. Please note that only registered service owls, cats, or toads will be permitted inside the venue this evening.
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 invitational slam begins at approximately 10:00. The show is 18+ (ID required) and the cover charge is $3.
