Cantab Recap for Wednesday, February 29, 2012

In case you were wondering, folks, it doesn’t snow downstairs in the Cantab; as we all know, the poetry is just too hot to allow it! After a stellar open mic, Lizard Lounge regular Neiel Israel powered through a true oratorial series of work, capturing the attention and imagination of the audience. A slam jam-packed with competitive readers came down to Omoizele Okoawo defeating Nora in the final round.

Next week: we’ll have Cape-Cod-via-Seattle old-school slam champ and established playwright Gregory Hischak, followed by another open slam.

But wait!– Can’t hold out until Wednesday to see more slam? No problem! This Saturday, March 3, the Boston Poetry Slam presents the Sixth Annual Attleboro Arts Museum Slam! Poets and spectators are invited to join us for a youth slam and adult slam with cash prizes, as well as special mini-features from April Ranger and Sam Teitel. Sign-ups start at 1:30 for a 2:00 show in the main room of the Museum. Hope the Commuter Rail and come spend your Saturday afternoon with us in Attleboro!
