van slam finals tonight
Tonight, Vancouver's top-ranked slam poets will compete. The winners will make us this year's Vancouver team, representing our slam community at the Nationals in Austin Texas in August. They'll also go to Toronto in October for the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word.
If you're in the area and you'd like to attend, here's the info:
Friday May 5
Doors at 8, show at 9
$10-$15 sliding scale admission
Feature: Sonya Renee
WISE Hall - Victoria and Adanac in Vancouver

Arrive early, we will sell every seat
It's also a tribute night for our host, Graham Olds, who will move to Vancouver Island soon. In between the competition and the feature we'll be saying nice things about Graham and giving him presents and stuff. (note to self - pack tissues)
question: is a slam host roast technically vegan?
