Cantab Recap for Wednesday, October 14, 2015

Last week: we welcomed the most excellent and thoughtful language pioneer Corrina Bain to the stage. C brought us a set with all the vulnerability, intensity, and honesty we’ve come to expect from this unique poet’s voice. The four-poet Slam of Doom (very serious) came down to a nailbiting third round between Encyclopedia Show host Chloé Cunha and New Hampshire wunderkind Ed Wilkinson. Ed took the final round, and the ten bucks, qualifying him for next week’s Champion of Champions slam.

NEXT WEEK: it’s a double-header! On Tuesday, we’ll welcome The Encyclopedia Show: Somerville back to the Davis Square Theatre for the second installment of Season 3; the show will feature poetry, music, comedy, and Very Important Interviews on the topic of WYOMING! Then, on Wednesday, we’re back at the Cantab for our usual open mic, featuring Tim “Toaster” Henderson and the Champion of Champions poetry slam. October! October! October!
