You're not ready for this slam, folks!
At this show, we throw the rules out the window and give you a no-rules slam! Poets can slam with props and costumes and backing tracks and instruments and juggling acts. Two rules do apply though: no nudity and the time limit remains at 3 minutes 10 seconds.
Signup at 730pm sharp with Cass, the host.
Open mic available as well.
