abby

What a way to kick of 2014!! Slamming the night away!

The Mercury Lounge was full of double and triple dutiers… Rusty Priske was Host and DJ… Benoit Christie was scorekeeper, timekeeper, judge finder and fill-in door person… Michel Lacroix was the rest of the door person…

And then there were the poets (an dither kinds of spoken word… and singing word… and whatever…)

The open mic was… wait for it… ECLECTIC!!!

We started with a comedy bit by Mayhem with a D-Zaster crash…. then ran way too long. Sorry guys. Then came Benoit who added to his other duties by belting out a song! Angel Heart read from her journal and Avenue finished things of with a poem in french and one in english!

For the slam itself we started with a sac poet visiting from Carleton Place… U-Turn! 9.1 9.5 9.9 7.5 8.5 – 27.1!

Not only thanks for coming out for U-Turn, but there were a number of out-of-town surprises in the audience like Jessica Ruano, Tracy Kwissa and Andrea Armadillo!

The first name out of the semi-magic hat was P-Rime! 9.4 9.2 9.7 8.6 8.8 – 27.4 A pretty good way to start things off!

Next was Billie the Kid who was right in the same wheel house – 9.8 8.8 9.7 9.0 9.0 – 27.7

CPC Director Brad Morden was next to the mic! 9.5 9.3 9.7 9.5 9.2 – 28.3!

Could the next score be even higher? Mia Morgan! 9.7 9.4 9.4 9.5 9.2 – 28.3 as well!

Next up was Rock Howell… or not! He didn’t answer the call. Where was he?

Moving on to Sarah Ruszala! 9.2 9.5 9.6 8.0 9.0 – 27.7

Wait, Rock was back! Should we let him slam? The informal crowd vote said, go for it! 9.4 8.0 TEN 9.7 7.8 – 27.1

Next was Obnoxious! 8.5 9.5 9.4 7.8 8.6 – 26.5

Abby Kassirer (pronounced Kaseer, it turns out…) was next up! 8.8 9.4 TEN 9.9 9.9 – 29.4!!! Big!

The season leader, PrufRock was next! 9.7 9.8 9.6 9.6 9.5 – 29.1!!

Artemysia stepped up next! 9.6 9.0 9.5 9.5 9.5 – 28.5!

The Penultimate poet of round #1 was non other than Playto! 8.3 9.6 9.7 9.0 9.0 – 27.6

The first round ended with a D-Zaster! 8.7 8.2 9.6 7.9 8.2 – 24.8

Then (after a break) we were treated to a feature by poetry superstar, Andre Prefontaine! Awesome! Amazing! Adjectives!

Time for round two!
