The Oaklandish Poetry Slam Series Finals!!!
Here's what The Express says....
THU 6/16: Spittle Happens
It's been a long, hard, grueling, and wordy competition, filled with passion, emotion, pathos, and flying spittle. And it all comes to an end Thursday night, when the winners of the Oakland(ish) Poetry Slam season's previous events take the stage one last time, in a three-round elimination battle hosted by Nazelah Jamison and Dahled. The first-, second-, and third-place finalists will represent Oakland in the National Poetry Slam Competition against 75 other teams from other cities in August. To paraphrase a line often uttered by surfers, snowboarders, and other professional athletes, it's time to go poetic or go home. 8 p.m., 411 2nd St., Oakland." -- Eric K. Arnold, East Bay Express
The Bay Area's individual poetry slam season reaches its thrilling climax this week, on Thursday, June 16 with The Oakland(ish) Slam Series Finals. The Bays 10 top wordsmiths, selected by you from the winners of this year's Slams, will lock poetic horns for spots on a team to represent Oakland at The National Poetry Slam this August in Albuquerque, NM. At this final finals there will be 3 rounds of competition and the top 3 poets of the evening will comprise Team Oakland `05. Be there in person to witness the mayhem first hand!
