CapSlam ReCap

Apollo

Our first CapSlam in November was also our second CapSlam at Cafe Alt! Trying t make sure everyone could find their way in was a job, but once things settled down, we had a list of NINE slammers, including some out of town faces and a surprise CapSlam debut!!

Rusty Priske took the stage as host with a poem to get people in the mood before he turned it over to stand-up comedian Tommy Fitz for an open mic section!

Then it was on to the slam!

Spilling the sacrificial blood was one of the co-organizers of our ‘sister-show’ Urban Legends, Playto! 8.2 6.5 6.9 7.5 8.2 – 22.2

Then it was time for Rusty to reach into the magic hat and the first name out was multiple-time CFSW finalist, Made Wade! 9.2 9.5 9.6 9.0 8.7 – 27.7

Next up was a slam rookie, but quite a word spinner, Shakesfear! 8.9 8.2 9.1 8.3 7.9 – 25.4

Next was a visiting poet who has repped at CFSW a few times, Wes Ryan! 9.2 9.3 9.4 9.4 9.3 – 28.0

Next up was a CapSlam debut, believe it or not! In all this time, Apollo the Child had never slammed with us… until now! 9.5 9.6 9.4 9.5 9.0 – 28.4

The mid-point of the round was filled by the CPC Director, Sarah Ruszala! 9.1 9.0 9.5 9.3 9.3 – 27.7

Another visiting poet, in from Montreal after reaping Guelph at CFSW, EVT was up! 9.1 8.7 9.5 9.2 9.4 – 27.7

Another Urban Legend, Infinite Mind was next out of the hat! 9.2 9.0 9.4 9.4 9.5 – 28.0

Next up was Blue, and it you want to see the petition that we spoke about at the show, you can check it out here.

Lastly, CapSlam Champ Nina Vuleta hit the stage! 9.3 9.4 9.3 9.2 9.3 – 27.9

After a break it was feature time and we were treated to the powerful words of Truth Is…!

Truth Is… has been sharing poems at the National level since 2006 and it was a real treat to witness the work on our stage. It has been a little but, but for tonight anyway, the Truth was here!

Then we were back for another round of slamming! Back into the hat as (nearly) everyone came for another go ’round. (Shakesfear didn’t stick around.)

EVT – 9.0 9.0 9.3 9.3 9.2 – 27.5
