Oh, Canada

(That's the title of my favorite poem from last night's Slam Master Slam competition at El Rey)

This is a reminder (as though you haven't heard enough about it already): you still have two days (well, one-and-a-half) to go check out some truly impassioned prose at the National Poetry Slam. If you can't afford a ticket, just walk around Downtown; you're sure to see some freestylin' in the street. If you can afford a ticket, buy one for the finals (tomorrow at the Kiva Auditorium from 8 to 11:30 p.m. It's an event that should not be missed. You can find a schedule of events, as well as information on how to get your hands on some tickets, in last week's feature. [link]

You can also stay tuned with this issue on Duke City Fix's website, which is giving daily inside updates on prime poetry moments (concerning such stimulating issues as skinny dipping and anal beads). [link]
