CapSlam ReCap

We wrapped up 2015 with a show that featured one of the biggest names in Canadian Spoken Word – Ian Keteku!

Plus there were presents!

Plus there was a Rusty Carol!

Plus there was a slam!

Rusty took the stage as host and introduced the first Open Micer – a newcomer to our stage, Maisaloon!

With the strains of ‘Come Back’ echo gin through the room, Rusty Priske tried to make singing a Christmas Carol Parody about himself an annual tradition.

Then it was time for the slam… but as every SlamFan knows, we can’t have a slam without spilling a little sacrificial blood. It was CPC Director and OYPS Slam Master, Sarah Ruszala offering herself up! 8.0 8.8 9.2 8.5 8.8 – 25.6

Then it was time for the magic hat and the first name out was a familiar face, of late off in Toronto, Kay Kassirer! 8.0 9.0 9.3 8.3 8.5 – 25.8

They were followed by another mainstay, D-Zaster! 8.4 8.9 9.1 8.7 9.5 – 26.7

Third up was this year’s new star, Blue! 9.7 9.5 9.6 9.0 9.2 – 28.3!

Man, myth or Urban Legend? Infinite Mind was next! 9.8 9.1 8.8 8.7 9.4 – 27.3

Next was one of our new regulars, Word Witch! 8.0 8.3 8.0 8.1 8.0 – 24.1

One of three CapSlam Champs in the house, Nina Vuelta was next! 8.6 9.4 9.2 8.5 8.8 – 26.6

The penultimate poet of the round was a CapSlam newcomer, Sarah Kabamba! 8.5 8.5 9.1 9.0 8.7 – 26.2

We wrapped up with the return of DMP! 8.9 9.0 9.5 9.1 9.6 – 27.6

 

After a break it was time for former CapSlam Champ, former CFSW National Champ, former WORLD Champ, and all-around poetry powerhouse, IAN KETEKU!

It was great to have the legend back at CapSlam!

(Also, shout out to the third CapSlam Champ who stopped by for the show… Sense-Say was on hand!)

Then it was back to the hat, and back to the slam!

First up would have been Infinite Mind but he had to duck out so it was back to the hat for… D-Zaster! 8.5 9.0 8.9 8.6 8.5 – 26.0

Then we were back for a new shade of Blue! 9.0 9.8 8.9 8.9 9.0 – 26.9

Next up… DMP! 8.8 8.6 9.3 9.7 9.2 – 27.3

He was followed by his teammate, Nina Vuleta! 8.8 8.9 8.7 9.1 8.8 – 26.5

First-timer, Sarah Kabamba was back! 9.5 9.0 8.4 9.3 8.5 – 26.8

Next back was Kay Kassirer! 9.0 9.7 8.5 9.5 9.5 – 28.0!

We wrapped up with Word Witch! 8.0 8.2 8.6 8.3 8.2 – 24.7
