The last CapSlam before CFSW and poetry is in the air! We have yet to have a two-time winner this season but Rusty Priske, PrufRock and Billie the Kid have all signed up… will we have our first two-time champ?

We started with the open mic and it was eclectic as ever! ArRay-of-WoRds, Angelheart, a newcomer names Sham and Mayhem shared the stage.

Then came the slam! We needed a sacrifice so CapSlam team member V stepped to the mic!

Bullet time… Sarah Ruszala! The OYPS Champ gave un a linguistics lesson! 8.2 8.4 8.4 8.7 8.8 – 25.5 (tough judges…)

Next up was a new face… it was his first time even AT a slam! Nicolai Gregory! 7.8 8.5 8.6 9.0 9.2 – 26.1 (great debut!)

One of the rising starts on the scene – Abby Kassirer! 8.7 8.9 9.0 9.2 9.7 – 27.1

Stepping out from behind the DJ booth, PrufRock was next! 8.8 8.9 9.0 9.3 9.3 – 27.2

The poet with the best name (at least when written), Joesph Sic was the penultimate poet of Round one! 7.5 8.2 8.3 8.5 8.8 – 25.0

We finished off with D-Zaster! 8.5 8.9 8.9 9.1 9.1 – 26.9

Round two saw the second coming of Marz in the Merc! 8.6 8.9 9.3 9.4 9.5 – 27.6
