Our summer of slam continues with the second of two Nationals-style 4×4 matches– meaning four teams in four rounds, the ultimate balanced format for a poetry battle of strategy, emotion, and wits, and a precise parallel to the competition our local teams will face at the 2016 National Poetry Slam. This slam will pit four local Nationals-bound teams against one another, including your home team.
This second summertime 4×4 will pit four Nationals-bound teams against one another, including:
- The reigning National Champions of Boston’s House Slam;
- The rookies of the north from Mill City Slam;
- The quirky queens of I-90, hailing from Seven Hills Slam;
- And your own beloved powerhouse home team!
This show will have a slightly shortened open mic and will sell out in exactly two hot seconds, people, so we advise arriving for door time at 7:15 if you want to get in to catch the show… Otherwise you’ll be waiting until July 20 for the next 4×4 we’ve booked for the summer. Cover charge is $5 to help raise funds for our team to travel to Nationals in Decatur this August!
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 slam begins at approximately 10:00. The show is 18+ (ID required) and the cover charge is $5.
