Well damn, son. Another 11 poets competed last night at VicSlam and with the randomly selected judges proving themselves both brutal and consistent, the competition was tight! The show was so exciting, in fact, that the host became moderately flustered; the feature Electric Jon was a pleasantly schizophrenic whirlwind of sound n fury; and the top performers walked away with outmoded entertainment media storage devices (movies on VHS tapes! Score!). Here are the top 5 poets who made it into the second round, in order of their awesomeness.
1st place: Jane Bee 54.9
2nd place: Jeremy Loveday 52.7
3rd place: Matthew Christopher Davidson 51.3
4th place: Dave Morris 48.2
5th place: Garth von Buchholz 48.0
Over the next few days, we will be crunching ALL the numbers from the season and compiling the list of performers for the Finals in June. Watch this space for that and other VicSlam related goodness!
