The next Capital Slam comes your way on Saturday, August 6th at the Home of Capital Slam, the Mercury Lounge!
The sumemr is a great time to kick back and enjoy an amzing range of poetry – some hard-hitting and political, some heart-wrenching and personal, and everything in between!
Loh El won the last slam, with strong showings by fresh voices (Mia Morgan, Rastabula) and established vets (ArRay-of-Words, Rusty Priske). Who will take it in August?
We also will be blessed by a feature set by Edmonton’s Mary Pinkoski. For those of who cuaght Mary performing at CFSW last October, you know what you are in for. For the rest of you… just wait and see!
