Capital Slam Recap #2

DMP

Our seonc slam of the season, a mere week after the kick-off, and once again… new faces… new voices… new venue…. NEW LIFE!

Rusty hit the stage at Cafe Nostalgica to open up the Open Mic portion of the show and a CapSlam fave rocked out – Mayhem!

A last minute swap then had Rusty sharing a poem for the crowd!

Then it was time for the slam and an Open Micer last week became the Sac Poet this week: Oakley! 9.5 9.2 8.2 8.0 8.4 – 25.8

Big range!

Then Rusty pulled out his magic hat to get the slam itself under way!

Another CapSlam team member hit the stage next – DMP! 9.9 9.7 8.0 9.8 9.3 – 28.8!

We wrapped up the round with Lazy Hero! 9.3 9.1 9.2 8.4 8.9 – 27.2

Then we had a break (where people took the opportunity to order from Cafe Nostalgica’s yummy menu!) before coming back for an AMAZING FEATURE!!!!

King Kimbit and Rational Rebel have put together a set with music and poetry running back and forth with panache! It was a great treat to have them share on our stage! Superb!
