Springtime, Cantabbers! Thanks so much for everyone who came out to see SlamMaster Emeritus Michael Brown upon his warm-weather awakening from Down East Maine hibernation. Michael worked the room with a smattering of old and new work, weaving together a bit of history for us on a sweet spring night. The four-person Last Chance Slam was won by Simone, who, despite the protestations of host Sean Mulroy, mathematically outranked Mckendy Fils-Aimé in the one minute-round of doom.
Next week: you might not know it, but you have been waiting for World Qualifier Speed Slam all year! More than two dozen of your favorite poets are qualified to slam… But they’ll have to come up with one- and two-minute poems to do it in this battle royale of wicked short poems. Come see one of our most creative events of the year– and root for your favorite eight to move on to the World Qualifier Finals in June.
