Cantab Recap for Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Cantabbers, is your heart broken? Does your tongue stick to the roof of your mouth when you try to string two metaphors together? Do you find that your inner monologue has taken on the rise and fall of a New York City barker selling incense on the streets of Ann Arbor? Well, you may be suffering from acute withdrawal from Angel Nafis, last night’s brilliant and engaging feature, who hung out and shot the snark with us for one mind-blowing night before heading to Oklahoma to begin her tour with the Dirt Choir.

Angel may be a tough show to follow, but if you stayed for the slam, you know the competition gave her a run for her money; with spring team qualifications inching closer, our open slams are getting hotter and hotter. Last night’s featured Maya Phillips pulling out a win in the final round against Sophia Holtz. Daaaayyyyyyyum.

Still waking up in the middle of the night craving good words? The only fix for what ails you is to come back next week! Our feature will be the Lizard Lounge’s famous Neiel Israel, and we’ll have another open poetry slam in the 8×8 series.
