CapSlamReCap – Oct. #2

The time had come for another Capital Slam and it was EXCITING! The fourth slam of the season and the fourth slam winner of the season!

Five times the feature!

Kay’la Fraser was rocking out as host and DJ PrufRock was back from on tour and spinning the atmosphere!

First up was the open mic and we started with Mayhem singing up a metal storm (but not a Brainstorm… that would come later). Then we had ArRay-of-WoRds dropping some new wisdom!

The Sac Poet was Urban Impresario, Just Jamaal! 8.5 8.7 8.7 9.2 9.2… and he was so kind to introduce the concept of a time penalty to the audience as he ran 3:46 and ended with 24.6

So who would draw the magic bullet? Shaun Sullivan in his season debut! He just won the Poetry Slam up at Algonquin, so how would he do drawing spot #1? 7.9 8.3 8.6 9.0 9.5 – 25.9

Next up was Obnoxious… did he live up to his new name? The judges said 8.1 8.1 8.4 8.5 8.6 – 25.0

On a day of thunder and lightning, the Mercury Lounge was witness to a Brainstorm! 8.0 8.5 8.9 9.1 9.2 – 26.5

Fresh off his Urban Legends win was Covered in Wednesday! 8.4 8.8 8.9 8.9 9.1 – 26.6

A Panos by any other name was smell as sweet as… Playto! 7.7 7.9 8.3 8.4 9.1 – but he went 3:34 – 23.1

Mia Morgan decided that Playto shouldn’t feel alone with those time penalty issues and went 3:57. 7.9 8.4 8.4 8.7 9.1 – 22.9

Last CapSlam winner, P-Rime was up next! 8.6 8.8 8.9 9.2 9.4 – 26.9

We hadn’t seen Ivan Rose in a while! 8.3 8.4 8.5 8.6 9.3 – 25.5

We rounded out the first round with Billie the Kid… and wow! Did she ever make an impression! 9.1 9.2 9.3 9.6 9.8 – 28.1!

Then came the feature… the 2013 CapSlam team! They joked, they bantered, they spread poetry on thick! It was a lot of fun and now… OFF TO CFSW!!

THe second round had the top 5 pots from the first round… starting with Shaun Sullivan who drew the bullet AGAIN! 8.0 8.4 8.5 8.6 9.0 – 25.5

Next was the top scorer from Round one, Billie the Kid! 8.5 9.1 9.1 9.2 9.4 – 27.4

P-Rime brought the love back for another round – 8.5 8.8 9.0 9.0 9.2 – 26.8

Covered in Wednesday was Shining on Saturday! 8.7 8.8 8.9 9.1 9.2 – 26.8

Then came a second bout of Brainstorm! 8.8 9.0 9.5 9.5 9.7… but 3:42 – 26.0
