Just as you were beginning to lament the departure of poetry slams–in fact, just as you were gearing up your troops and decorating your picket signs in order to publicly denounce the more-than-noticeable absence of riveting, transcendent wordplay competitions that took campus by storm last fall–your disslamisfaction will now be put in temporary check. Because coming to you live tomorrow night is the first of three preliminary slams that will take place throughout the spring semester. And it’s gonna be hosted by X-House and weSLAM! Details on Facebook. More after the jump!
From the Facebook event:
This first slam is open to everyone. The 3 highest-scoring poets will earn spots in April’s Championship Slam. If you don’t make it this time, you have 2 more chances!
Lord knows I’ll be there! Will you?
- DATE: Thursday, February 3rd, 2011
- TIME: 9:00 pm, signup; 9:15, open mic; 9:45, the poetry begins!
