This will be the last opportunity for poets to qualify for the youth slam playoffs in March. To qualify you must slam/compete during the 2015/2016 regular season (July 2015-Feb 2016) at least twice AND you CANNOT be turning 21 BEFORE Sept 1st, 2016.

Only poets who have not yet qualifed for the playoffs will be allowed to compete on this night.

As well as the poetry slam we will be having a poetry open mic and a feature performace from DANA ID MATTHEWS

“Dana, a Haitian born poet & MC, was adopted and raised in Timmins/London, Ontario. Now an independent Vancouver based artist, Dana has a voice that naturally commands the attention of anyone in the room. His diverse lyricism springs from his unique upbringing & extensive spoken word poetry background. Dana’s first memories of writing were in form of French short stories, as he was raised bi-lingual. He first got into Hip-Hop music after being introduced to it at 13 years of age.

Since then, Dana has made a multitude of collaboration music with people all over the world through the help of social media. Notably, his professional Hip-Hop mixtape, “Hippies & Aliens”, released in 2014 under a small label to glowing audience response. Currently, Dana has released an independent mixtape called ” Piece of Pie”, and is working on expanding his resume, focusing on building his own brand that surrounds his recording, engineering, & editing skills.”

We are super excited to have Dana as our feature. Come fill the Cafe with positive vibes and hot words for our last chance slam.
