This past Wednesday, we enjoyed a fabulous four-team slam from poets near and far, getting together for our last 4×4 of the year with the Boston Poetry Slam Team! We were hype to see a surprise dose of group work from Endopolis Poetry Room and Mill City Slam, plus new work and a sweet team vibe from the Awkward All-Stars pickup crew, who landed solidly in the runner-up spot for the night. The Wednesday’s big winners, with their first win at home and remaining champions in our hearts for the rest of 2019, were Terah Ehigiator, Arianna Monet, Joshua Elbaum, Zeke Russell, and, of course, the disembodied four-part floating voice of the MBTA.
This week: we return with an early-bird workshop from John Pinkham: arrive around 5:30 for a 6:00 generative and discussion workshop on humor! Cost is $5-$20, sliding scale, which covers the cost of admission: click here to sign up in advance or to learn more about the event. As always, our doors will re-open at 7:15 for an 8:00 open mic followed by a feature set from Johnny Pink himself.
