Tonight’s feature will be the send-off for the five-person 2012 Boston Poetry Slam Team. Join Kemi Alabi, Antonia Lassar, Omoizele Okoawo, Mckendy Fils-Aimé, and Melissa Newman-Evans at their last night at the Cantab before the National Poetry Slam! These five poets will be polished and ready for NPS in North Carolina the next week– and ready to show off the work they are taking to Charlotte to compete.
We’re giving this group a special extended feature slot to really stretch out and show their stuff. Since it’s their last night in town, we’ll also be charging a $5 cover (instead of the usual $3) to help fund their trip and lodging at NPS. In return, you can expect a stellar feature of top-notch work performed fabulously– including those group pieces you might not get to see again after this season!
This show in our weekly Wednesday series takes place at the Cantab Lounge, 738 Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge. Doors for the show open at 7:15. The open mic begins at 8:00 and the feature performs at approximately 10:00. There is no open poetry slam tonight. The show is 18+ (ID required) and the cover charge is $5 tonight to help fundraise for the slam team’s trip to the National Poetry Slam.
