    ‘New York City! It is Broadway! It is bright lights!’ What a coincidence–if you want to hear more about ol’ Big York Town, including some slam poetry about that wild lady in the dress they used to call New Amsterdam, come on out to NEW YORK YOU ARE MY WIFE tomorrow night at 8 the WestCo Cafe! (Or tonight, but we don’t need a Slam Civil War on our hands– Check ’em both out!)

      Really? You’re gonna plug your own event on the post for an event at the same time? That’s pretty lame.

  2. out of curiousity

    just wondering, where does that characteristic slam tone/voice/meter/whatever that makes all slam sound like slam come from?

    1. Rabblerowza

      That is a great question that I cannot answer, but keep in mind that the greats out there don’t use “slam voice.” Did you see Buddy Wakefield either of the times he performed?

      1. Asdf

        If it weren’t for Buddy and one or two other “Slam Poets” that don’t use this exact same tone I’d say that all this shit sounds the same.

        1. Chomp

          It makes sense that it bothers you, but a lot of poets try to get rid of it. It’s a difficult process. If it’s that much of a problem for you, I urge you to try and listen to the content rather than the form. Also, I’m a little confused why “slam poets” is in quotes.
