Victoria Poetry Slam Returns Early!

So last you heard we were going to be starting up regular slams in January.

Problem is, we couldn't wait till then! We're too excited about performance poetry and judging and being judged that there was just no way we we could hold off until after the holidays. So, for those of you who are as impatient as the rest of us we've thrown together a pretty wicked kick-off to the new poetry slam season. We're talking about a licensed venue, we're talking about a rowdy crowd, we're talking hilarious stand-up poet Mike McGee as feature. You like what you're hearing? (Hearing in this case can be substituted with the word reading.) Yes, you do. You actually love it. Ok, so first things first...who is Mike McGee? You don't know? Well we think you might be lying but we'll hook you up with his bio anyway. If reading about him isn't enough to get you out on a frosty December night you might want to check out some video of the man in action.

Alright, so now you're sold on the feature but don't forget there will also be local poets battling it out for supremacy and your job is to come out and let them know what you think. The audience is what Slam is all about so we need a good audience. Obviously, a good audience includes you so here are the details. Victoria Poetry Slam: Tuesday, December 15. Cabin 12 at 607 Pandora. (If Lower Johnson is the shopping district these days, we're turning lower Pandora into the poetry district!) Just $5 at the door. Doors will open at 7 for the show to kick off at 7:30. Come out and be prepared for awesome!
