FINAL CPC SUMMER SLAM OF 2015!

UL2015

As the summer draws to a close so does this season of the CPC Summer Slam and we wrapped things up with a feature by the full 2015 CapSlam team!

But with all those poets featuring, who was going to slam? The Urban Legends team stepped up (minus ApolloTheChild who had a VERY important prior engagement!).

Four members of the 2015 UL team signed up, along with the Word Witch!

Rusty launched into the show without warning, dropping the origin of every poem, before giving way to Jenny, who rocked the open mic.

Soon, the audience was calling for blood and Sarah Ruszala stepped up to be our noble sacrifice. 9.0 8.5 9.2 8.2 9.2 – 26.7

Note: there were some tough judges… but they were consistent and fair! Yeah for doing the tough job!

Then Rusty dipped into the magic hat as the poets came out for a 3-minute round.

First up was Dali! 8.0 7.0 9.5 7.0 7.8 – 22.8

Next was and old friend of CapSlam’s (and the new co-director of Urban Legends), Playto! 9.0 8.2 8.9 7.8 7.8 – 24.9

He was followed by the third UL team member, Girly-Boy! 8.8 8.7 9.2 7.0 7.9 – 25.4

Setting the bar was the FOURTH UL team member, Infinite Mind! 9.8 9.0 9.5 8.5 9.0 – 27.5!

We wrapped up with a new regular, Word Witch! 8.9 9.8 7.5 7.0 8.2 – 24.6

With followed the first round with a sneak peak of a play by DMP and Golbon, set to make its debut in October!

Then it was time for…. THE LIGHTNING ROUND!

INFINITE MIND! 8.8 9.0 9.2 8.2 8.0 – 26.0

WORD WITCH! 8.5 7.8 8.9 7.5 8.0 (but she went 1:29 for a 1 point penalty) – 23.3

PLAYTO! 8.6 8.0 8.7 8.0 7.9 (but he went 1:18 for a .5 penalty) – 24.1

GIRLY-BOY! 8.5 8.2 9.6 7.8 8.4 – 25.1

DALI! 8.5 7.9 9.2 7.8 8.4 – 24.8

After a break (where people had the opportunity to check out the CapSlam team mercy, like the chapbook and BRAND NEW CD!), the team hit the stage for a feature!

They shared some new team stuff… some solo stuff… some old stuff and some new stuff. There was even some surprise stuff.

It was fun.

Then it was back for ROUND THREE!

First out of the hat was the Word Witch! 9.5 8.7 8.8 8.0 8.5 – 26.0

Next up was the star of the slam (getting the highest score EVERY ROUND), Infinite Mind! 9.7 8.8 TEN 8.8 8.9 – 27.4

Next was (ahem) the ‘old guy’, Playto! 9.8 9.0 9.3 8.9 8.2 – 27.2

The penultimate poet of the night was Dali! 9.8 7.8 9.9 7.8 8.8 – 26.4
