Come on out to the Black Bull Tavern on Thursday May 19th.
For the 2nd year in a row you will help us select the Burlington Slam Project team to represent us on the regional & national stage. Although last year’s team was Burlington’s first, they placed 4th in a field of 18 and made to the finals stage. So this year’s team has big shoes to fill.
Curious to know who qualified? Yogi, P.O.E., Shoolie, Kay’la Fraser, Curtis Meyer, Tasha Fortunate, Tomy Bewick, Truth Is…, Brandon Williamson, Dan Murray, Erika Haygood, Duffman, Kevin Sutton, Lip Balm, Oskar Niburski.
As usual, there will be a $5 cover charge and festivities will kick off @ 8pm with sign-up for the open mic. Seeing as this is the finals it is a closed slam. Our guest hosted will be, Toronto Poetry Slam’s, Dave “BIG DEAL” Silverberg. In BSP tradition, we will forgo a feature so we can cram in more awesome local poets with a 3 round slam! As usual, the money that would normally go toward the feature will help the team cover the cost of attending the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word.
