Amy: What a week Cantab! I’ll just get straight into it. The open mic was full, sold out, and electric with excitement!

Hello Cantab! We are back with another night of tales from the basement. There was a bangin’ open mic, a team qualifying slam, and your typical shenanigans.

Cantab Recap For Wednesday, November 22nd, 2023

Hey Cantabbers! It’s always a unique show when we gather the day before Thanksgiving at the Boston Poetry Slam, as the holiday brings in a lot of out-of-towners.
