RebelSlam July 2011

I went along to see what the Adelaide RebelSlam meetings  were like, in July 2011.  Took a couple of pieces with me.  Slamming, if you don’t know about it, is competitive poetry!  Random members of the audience give each poet marks out of 10. The top 3 or 4 or more go onto the next round etc. until the final round, when the top scorer is the champ for the night.  It’s not too serious however.  Nobody gets too upset about losing, or too excited about winning.

Anyway, despite being freezing cold, in a semi condemned building in King William St., it was good fun, and there were some top performers there.

Wierdly enough, I ended up winning the event.  Here is the piece I did in the ‘final’.

Be warned, some viewers may find the language offensive.
