It’s the last regular slam of the season! This means it’s the last chance to qualify for the Grand Slam on April 27. (See the Standings to check who’s already qualified). We’ll also have our regular open mic–poets, musicians, and comedians welcome. Sign up at the door.
This mic will feature the Emory University Slam Team! The Emory Slam Team is comprised of Elliot Levy, Ashely Bernard, Nabila Lovelace, and Daniel Weingarten, and coached by Art Amok! coach Karen G. The team is on their way to compete at CUPSI, the national college poetry slam, later in the month. Check out team captain and founder Daniel Weingarten:
See you there on Friday, April 13, 7.30pm doors open, 8pm start.
As usual, we’ll be doing our thing with the open mic and slam. Sign ups for both begin at 7:30pm. Everybody welcome for a 5-minute spot on the open mic… poetry, music, bring it! This is our second-to-last slam. If you’re trying to qualify for the Grand Slam, get yourself over here! You can check where you are in the standings right now, but remember: the standings change with every slam. No spot is guaranteed.
And don’t forget about our feature, CB from Charlotte! CB is a multi-talented artist. His poetry ranges from entertaining to enlightening to downright jaw-dropping, as edgy and somewhat controversial pieces have become his trademark. A competitor in the 2009 Individual World Poetry Slam, his furious and yet fluid style has garnered much attention, yet he has been known to show a softer side as well. Musician, poet, producer, CB does it all and the indications are what we’ve seen is merely a sign of greater things to come. Catch more of him on his website. Here’s a little preview for you:
