CapSlam ReCap Dec Edition #1

Tis the season to be Slamming, fa la la la la, la la la la.

The Merc was alive with the sounds of poetry as Benoit took the stage with DJ Prufrock nearby to ring in a new Capital Slam!

We kicked off, as always, with an open mic and right away we were treated with the return to the CapSlam stage of Mayhem! Next came a rising voice on the scene (and tonight’s volunteer door person), Ocean! Lastly we had a newcomer to our stage, Danni-Rae!

With the audience all set, Ben introduced tonight’s sacrificial poet, Urban Legend, D-Zaster! 7.6 7.5 8.8 7.5 6.5 – 22.6

Whoa! Harsh judges! (They stayed pretty consistent, though. Harsh right through… mostly.)

So then it was time for Ben to dip into the magic hat and the first name out was… Nina Vuleta! 8.3 8.0 8.5 8.2 8.5 – 25.0

The first of two brand new poets hit the stage next. (In fact, this was her first slam she had ATTENDED!) Alexandra Barnzdina! 8.3 7.0 4.0 8.5 6.4 – 21.7

Next up was Magpie Season! 8.5 7.5 9.0 8.3 7.6 – 24.4

A lot of new (or nearly new) faces so who was next?

What is the opposite of that? Rusty Priske! 9.7 8.5 9.1 8.7 TEN – 27.5

Another solid vet was next up… DMP! 8.5 7.8 7.4 8.2 7.4 – 23.4

The other newcomer rounded out the first half of the slam… Jennie Burns! 7.1 7.2 8.2 7.5 8.0 – 22.7

Then, after a shortish break, we came back for Komi Olaf as he married the arts of poetry and painting right there on the Mercury Lounge Stage! An epic blending of amazing artistry!

Komi is a true Renaissance Man!

Then we were back for the second round of the first slam in December!

And, why not have another sac poet? Why not invite D-Zaster back! 8.4 8.0 6.4 7.6 8.3 – 23.9

First out of the hat for the second round… Alexandra Barnzdina! 8.1 8.1 6.9 7.0 4.0 – 22.0

Next was the return of Magpie Season! 8.4 8.4 8.6 8.0 9.1 – 25.4

Next up… DMP! 8.6 7.2 9.1 8.1 8.2 – 24.9

A return trip for Jennie Burns! 6.8 8.6 9.0 7.9 8.0 – 24.5

Rusty Priske! 9.5 9.6 9.3 9.3 9.5 – 28.3

And, lastly, Nina Vuleta! 7.6 8.0 8.4 8.5 TEN – 24.9

That left us with final results that looked something like this…

1. Rusty Priske – 55.8
2. Nina Vuleta – 49.9
3. Magpie Season – 49.8
4. DMP – 48.3
5. Jennie Burns – 47.2
6. Alexandra Barnzdina – 43.7

A great night was had by all!

Next up is the last CapSlam of 2014, featuring the LiPS 2014 Grand Champion, Poetiquette!

Dec. 20th! At the Merc!
