This was the second gathering of this new Slam event, tonight upstairs at Valentines because some bands were scheduled downstairs. But this posed no problem for Slam poets who are typically loud & full of spit. You can get a full listing of the Slam participants & scores at the AlbanyPoets website. I was happy with my 7th place in Round 1 & hope to do better in the future as my poetry improves (or I am able to bribe at least 3 of the judges).
And just a reminder that Nitty Gritty Slam #3 will be happening tonight. Signup starts at 7PM, Open Mic at 7:30, and the Slam starts at 8PM.
