What you doing May 26? Oh, going to the Drake Hotel for our annual Anything Goes Slam? Smart move!
The Anything Goes Slam allows competitors to have some fun on stage and break the rules: wear a costume, do a cover, add some beats to your poem, play an instrument, bring a prop onstage, eat muffins while performing haikus, do something wacky, unexpected, original!
The only rule in place is the time-limit rule, still at 3 minutes 10 seconds max (and then there's time penalties).
Open mic available too.
7pm doors. 730pm signup. 8pm start
Guest-hosted by Livingston LaCroix from Guelph Poetry Slam!
