CapSlam ReCap


CapSlam took over Cafe Alt for another night of poetry pugilism in a faux fight of artistic assault.

But don’t let the virtual violence fool you – it is all love and art!

Sarah Ruszala played ringleader as she introduced a neophyte on the open mic… Megan! With a rousing chorus of ‘COME BACK!’ we then moved on to the slam itself.

Of course, we can’t have a slam without a little sacrificial bordeaux spilled and Sarah did the honours herself! 8.6 8.1 8.9 9.9 7.3 – 25.6

Five poets tossed their names in the non-proverbial hat and the first to be drawn out was Omar Saghir! 8.9 8.6 8.4 9.7 9.1 – 26.6

Next up was the second member of the CapSlam team to tai the stage (Sarah was the first), Billie the Kid! 8.7 8.6 9.1 9.4 8.0 – 26.4

The midpoint of the round was the third team member, Rusty Priske! 9.2 8.9 TEN TEN 9.5 – 28.7!

He was followed by new CPC regular, Word Witch! 8.6 9.6 8.8 9.6 9.0 – 27.4

The round wrapped up with the standings leader, Blue! 9.6 TEN 9.3 TEN 8.9 – 28.9!

After a short break we were then regaled with the poetry / rants / humour / ramblings of (yes)tefania! A member of the reigning CFSW Championship team, she showed there was a lot more to her than a trophy!

Then we cam back for another round of slam!

Billie the Kid was first back, but she went 3:15 for a .5 time penalty. 8.4 9.1 9.5 8.9 8.7 – 26.2

Next was the return of Word Witch! 8.5 8.2 8.4 9.5 8.4 – 26.3

The leader after Round one, Blue was next! 9.5 9.0 9.2 TEN 8.9 – 27.7

The penultimate poet of the night was (appropriately) Rusty Priske! 9.2 8.8 TEN TEN 9.5 – 28.7!

We wrapped things up with Omar Saghir, who went 3:12 for a .5 time penalty)! 8.5 8.7 8.9 TEN 9.0 – 26.1

Final Results

1. Rusty Priske – 57.4
2. Blue – 56.6
3. Word Witch – 53.7
4. Omar Saghir – 52.7
5. Billie the Kid – 52.6

Next up… all this coming week, Sarah, Billie and Rusty are joined by Nina Vuleta and DMP, representing CapSlam at the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word in Saskatoon!

Then, three weeks form now on Nov. 7th, CapSlam is back at Cafe Alt with superstar feature, Truth Is…!!
