CapSlam ReCap

Kay

November recap!

Or as scorekeeper Nina of the Strange wrote on the scoresheet, Novembrrrrrr….

Due to a bit of a scheduling snafu, we ended up with two amazing poets coming through town on the same day and both of them featured at CapSlam! It was a West Coast invasion as Missie Peters and Dia Davina took our stage by storm! (Or maybe by U-Haul…)

Due to the extra feature, we had curtail the open mic and we dove straight into the slam… starting with the cries of blood from the crowd.

The sacrificial poet was… Rusty Priske, with a never before slammed poem! 9.0 8.7 9.0 9.3 9.0 – 27.0

Then it was time to dip into the magic hat and see what wonders lay within!

First up was BEN! Improv on time! 8.2 8.6 6.5 8.9 8.7 and a 1.5 penalty after going 3:36. 24.0

Then came DMP and… wait, what are you doing to that mic stand? 8.7 9.5 8.5 9.6 8.1 – 26.7

A CapSlam first-timer! Magpie Season! 8.8 9.0 8.8 9.5 9.4 – 27.2

Kay Kassirer made their season debut! 9.4 9.5 TEN 9.8 9.4 – 28.7

New regular Shawn K hit the stage! 8.9 TEN 8.8 9.1 8.9 – 26.9

Next up was a finalist from last year, Ceilidhe Miller! 8.6 8.0 8.8 8.7 8.9 – 26.1

Yet another powerful youth voice, Nina Vuleta was next! 9.0 TEN 9.2 9.9 9.5 – 28.6

The 2104 champ, Gavin Russell was next to hit the stage, giving us a WW1 history lesson! 9.6 9.2 9.8 9.9 9.1 – 28.6

We finished off the round with a walking, talking D-Zaster! 8.9 8.3 8.8 8.3 9.6 – 26.0

Then, before we went to the break, we had our first feature set of the night… all the way from Victoria, B.C., Missie Peters! She hookasnatched our caderwauls! Complete with Director’s Commentary! Superstar!

Then we had a break. Boring to read about but sometimes you just need to gasp for breath after all this poetic amazingness.

Then we came back… for ANOTHER GREAT FEATURE! Another west coaster, Dia Davina gave us a lesson in u-hauling (and no, we didn’t know what you meant…) and a great set full of love and unicorns!

Enough?

What’s better than poetry?

MORE POETRY!

Time for Round 2!

We kicked off with Nina Vuleta! 8.5 8.7 9.7 9.3 9.2 – 27.2

Next was Ceilidhe Miller! 9.0 8.9 9.8 9.5 9.4 – 27.9

Another go-round for Kay Kassirer! 9.3 9.4 TEN 9.8 TEN – 29.2!

Then it was the master of D-Zaster! 9.4 8.8 9.0 9.4 9.0 – 27.4

Time for the other K… Shawn K! 9.1 9.3 9.5 8.9 9.2 – 27.6

Urban Legend, DMP was next! 9.3 9.4 TEN 9.5 TEN – 28.9!

Come back, Magpie Season! 9.2 9.1 9.7 9.4 8.9 – 27.7

The double penultimate poet was Gavin Russell! 9.5 9.7 9.5 9.9 9.0 – 28.7!

We finished the way we started… BEN! 9.8 9.0 9.2 9.9 9.3, but another time penalty about the same size. 3:32. 9.8 9.0 9.2 9.9 9.3 – 26.8
