MONDAY PICK | St. Paul’s Soap Boxing slam poetry team drowns its sorrows


In retrospect, it was inevitable that this would happen: take a town known for world-class beer and national champion slam poetry teams, toss in a drinkin’ spelling bee, and voila! We have our first (to my knowledge) drunk poetry slam. On July 2 at the Artists’ Quarter, the Soap Boxing slam poetry team—recently unseated from its back-to-back national championship dynasty—will “compete against the audience in drinking games while performing (with diminishing returns) for your amusement.” If nothing else, it’s gotta be better than Bye Bye Liver.
