CapSlam ReCap Dec Edition #2

DavidJamesHudson

When we are this deep into the holiday season, the slams can sometimes look a little different. Some regulars are away and some out-of-towners are IN town and ready to throw down!

The show kicked off with D-Zaster providing the hosting talents, DJ PrufRock proving the musical accompaniment and Chuck providing the… money taking.

But who provided the poetry?

How about three open micers?

How about scene regular, Omar? How about Lanark County fixture, B!WILDer? How about newcomer Aylin?

How about a great kick-off to our show?

Then it was time for the slam and, of course, we need to spill a little blood first (after a quick debate about whether a poet spilling blood would be legal) and who did host D-Zaster introduce?

D-Zaster! 8.5 8.5 6.0 7.8 8.5 – 24.8

Ouch! Would the judges stay that harsh? (Spoiler: no.)

Who would be the first name out of the hat to test that theory?

OYPS Slam Master, Sarah Ruszala! 9.3 8.5 7.0 9.2 8.9 – 26.6

Speaking of youth, the youth movement at CapSlam is booming! Next up was Magpie Season! 9.5 8.7 8.5 8.7 8.8 – 26.2

Next was a visiting poet from down Guelph way… David James Hudson! 9.6 9.6 9.0 9.8 9.5 – 28.7!

Home for the holidays… OYPS vet Billie the Kid was back in town! 9.2 8.9 8.7 9.2 8.8 – 26.9

Speaking of vets… Rusty Priske was next up! 8.5 8.8 9.0 9.0 9.0 – 26.8

Stepping out from behind the booth… PrufRock hit the mic! 8.9 9.2 9.6 9.8 9.3 – 28.1!

Another visiting poet, Bassam was up next! 9.7 8.9 9.7 8.6 9.2 – 27.8

We finished up with another of the new regular faces on the scene… Nina Vuleta! 8.9 8.8 8.9 8.8 8.9 – 26.6

The came the feature! Poetiquette was the 2014 LiPS Grand Champion as well as being part of multiple LiPS and OYPS teams. She gave us a very solid feature and showed that her time away in Toronto hasn’t changed her ability to edutain!
