8/28 Ready, Set, Slam!!

Posted by novoscene on August 28, 2008

So the National Poetry Slam is a wrap for 2008 and while our Bay teams didn’t take home the gold, best believe they gave Madison hell while they were there.  But for now at least, the strategies and fund raising and planning are being put on the back burner and it’s time to get back to basics: One person, one poem, one mic and three minutes to spit.

Tonight kicks off the 1st slam of the new Oakland season and it’s a great time for all newbies to scrounge up some courage, grab that ode to whatever you’ve been working on all summer and head over to Oasis and get down with your bad ass poetic selves.  The early bouts are a great place to learn the ropes and get tips from more experienced slammers and performers, before things get all hot and heavy towards the end of the year.  And if your a mic virgin, don’t worry.  It only hurts the first time.-kwan
