CapSlamReCapFebEd#1

It is the first of February but it is also the first Saturday in February which means it is the first Capital Slam of February!

The Mercury Lounge was jumping with a good crowd! PrufRock was hosting… DJ RPM was grooving…Benoit and Kay’la were taking the payola… Sarah was recruiting judges…

The stage was set…

BUT FIRST!! Open mic time!

Slam regular Kay Kassirer was there. Open Mic stalwart Mayhem was there. TWO BRAND NEW FACES at CAPSLAM were there! Anne and Alexander Way! Come back!

Then it was time to spill some sacrificial blood!

Sarah Ruszala – winner of the last CapSlam – did the honours! 5.8 7.5 8.5 9.4 9.4 – 25.4

5.8?!?!?! Yowza! The slammers were looking to be in trouble tonight!

Another visiting poet! Dan AKA Dan Murray AKA Dan! Visiting and blowing the roof off! 9.5 9.8 9.7 9.6 9.8 – 29.1!

What to hear about consistency? Nicolai Gregory has slammed three times and come in the exact same place, each time. 8.5 8.4 8.5 9.0 6.8 – 25.4

The first round wrapped up with vet Rusty Priske. 8.8 9.3 9.2 9.4 TEN – 27.7

Time for the feature! One of the Patron Saints of Slam came off our painting and on to our stage! The last time Dwayne Morgan featured at CapSlam was Sept. 2006… and he has only gotten better!
