- Unless otherwise stated! Be sure to check events for alternate venues.
3rd Thursday of every month. Sign-up is @ 8pm with Open Mic and then Slam to follow
For smoking hot poetry!
A cover charge $5 (Only $5???) goes towards paying for the feature performer and prize money for the winner of the slam.
As always we’ll have an Open Mic for any and all types of performance; bring your guitar, your songs, your stand-up, your rants and ragtime show tunes – it’s all about getting it out there! Or you can always sign up for the slam, see if you have what it takes to reign supreme, and take home the cash prize.

Burlington Slam Project ANYTHING GOES SLAM!!!
Featuring 2014 London Poetry Slam Team!
Now some of you may say: “Dan, what’s with all those pesky rules all the time? Why -can’t- I use props? Why -can’t- I dress like a cowboy and talk about the west? Why -can’t- I use my hurdygurdy? Why -can’t- I steal Bukowski’s work?”
And I will say “Because it’s the rules!”
And you’ll be all like “But the rules are stupid!”
And I’ll be all like “Well, fine, let’s throw the BLOODY THINGS OUT!”
And that’s how we get here! This month, August 21, 2014 – we will be having our annual ANYTHING GOES SLAM! Which means NO RULES!*
Want props? USE EM! Costume? THROW IT ON! Play a weird instrument? BRING IT! Wanna cover Imagisolve? EVERYBODY SHOULD!
And because we’ve all got such a lack of love for the rules, we need a feature that’s just chock full of love for everything, and who better than the 2014 London Poetry Slam Team!
Are you ready to show the love? The 2014 London Poetry Slam team is Holly Painter, Emma Blue, Alisha Tax, TedO, and Rachel Rensby, and regardless of the city, they’re ready to hit the mic and get your fingers snapping. Four parts returning members and one part newcomer, this year’s LPS team is a great blend of poetic voices coming to your stage soon!
SO COME BREAK RULES! LISTEN TO SOME TEAM STUFF! SEE ONE OF THE NATIONAL COMPETITORS DO THEIR THING! WATCH BASSAM HOST!
Bring five bucks! Bring a friend! Bring a goose, I don’t give a damn!
Just be sure to bring it! And we’ll see you there!
*still no hate speech though, because seriously – screw that crap. Also, 4 minute time limit instead of 3. We’re not animals. We live in a society.
