Cantab Recap for Wednesday, January 23, 2019

Welp, it’s glory days again at the Cantab, folks: sold-out shows have been going down all year (yes, we said that) for exceptional features and sweet&smart open mics every Wednesday. This past week, newcomers and folks in the know were treated to a feature by up-and-coming-and-already-here poet/scientist José Zepeda, who packed a half-hour with the deliberate, delicate, and forthright storytelling he’s come to be known for at our open mics and slams. The poet just might have one or two chapbooks left to sell you; hit him up to buy a physical or electronic copy if you’re lucky enough to catch him at an upcoming open mic.

Oh, and speaking of upcoming: next week we celebrate the fifth Wednesday of the month, and we are excited to present our first ever Joy Slam, with an open mic spotlight from Pacific NW poet Chris Leja! It’s gonna be a big and joyful night in the coldest heart of winter, folks; the slam is jam-packed with all-stars to joy you up, but there are still judging spots left if you want to be part of the show. See you there!
