Dearest audience members and slamgoers, its the weather again. We’re going to cancel tonight’s show and move ahead to March – deets will be up shortly!
Please be aware that the slam this month will be on the 3rd Sunday (because football winter in New England). Ignore the date on the flyer, please –
Raven McGill and Bobby Crawford will feature at the 7 Hill Poetry Slam on February 15th.
Bobby Crawford is the “one-man-boy-band” of Emerson College. He discovered the Boston Poetry Slam at the Cantab Lounge in his freshman year (via Emerson’s slam scene, the Emerson Poetry Project) and has been an avid open mic reader and slammer at the Boston Poetry Slam ever since. Bobby competed on three consecutive College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational teams representing Emerson (2011-2013). He also served as a curator of the Emerson Poetry Project from 2012-2013, where he was instrumental in helping the EPP win Emerson’s Student Organization of the Year. He is the winner of the 2013 Boston Poetry Slam World Qualifier and represented the Boston Poetry Slam at the 2013 Individual World Poetry Slam in Spokane, Wash., ranking 15th out of 70. A competitor and showman by instinct, Bobby is a retired nationally-ranked figure skater and a former chess-club kid. He plays harmonica and wears a leather jacket. He loves late night food and hanging out with other writers/performers. You can connect with him via Facebook.
