This past Wednesday, we had not one feature (Amethyst Arsenic), not two (including editor Samantha Milowsky), but nine! To celebrate the magazine’s winter issue release, Samantha put together a super line-up of poets who were published therein: Tony Brown, Sam Cha, Karen Locascio, Michael Lynch, Gordon Marshall, Jacqueline Morrill, Alexander Nemser, Tara Skurtu, and Jade Sylvan! To close out the night, Sean Patrick Mulroy and Simone Beaubien slammed off head-to-head in a genuine (not really) grudge match, with Simone taking the win and the season championship.
Next week: it’s the end of 2011, and, to celebrate, we’ll be asking Champion of Champions Adam Stone to defend his series title! The challenger will be Simone Beaubien, last week’s winner and season champ. The bartender and SlamMaster will fight it out the series’ last best-of-seven match ever, showing off some seriously deep pockets and likely some hearty trash-talking skills as well. There’s no open slam tonight, so hang out and enjoy the bar after the show!
