We had one heck of a night at the Poets’ Asylum this week. The open mic was packed with great stuff including several first time readers and readings from members of the Art Amok Slam Team out of Atlanta, GA. They were on their way to the National Poetry Slam in Cambridge, which is a nice lead-in to our feature for the night, the 2011 Worcester Slam Team. Brandi MacDonald, Bill MacMillan,Bobby Gibbs, Alex Charalambides and Liz Heath showed that they are ready to take on all challengers next week. With refined individual pieces and some really tight group work they will leave their mark on the hearts and minds of the audiences and poets at Nationals. We know they’ll do us proud.
Join us next week for the annual Anti-Slam!
