Happy Love & Death week, Cantabbers; we are super-grateful to our sixteen intrepid slammers who came out to represent the Valentine’s entity of their choice for this dead-of-winter warm-n-cuddly mid-winter week. In a twist surprising absolutely no one, after an intensely wrought sacrificial round, a highly subjective intro by an outrageously death-aligned slam host, and seven carefully crafted head-to-head matchups: love wins, remaining undefeated in the Cantab basement! Pretty impressive in this economy, poets; hope to see everyone back at it in this slam again next year.
Meanwhile, we’ve got one February week left, and we’re extremely excited to be spending it celebrating RLynn. This longtime open mic poet, make-you-better heckler, and generous bartender will be laying out a half hour headline set to close out the month (and there’s a rumor there may be zines in the house to take home afterward). See you Wednesday!
