So, we finally got around to uploading most of the videos from May and some leftover videos from April. You might notice that Carlina Duan’s featured set and Jeff Vande Zande’s featured set are still missing. Our videographer (ahem!) sort of messed those up so we’re working on editing those. We’re also working on getting videos from Rustbelt up for y’all — so stay tuned!! More viewing pleasure is in your near future. In the meantime, check out Tuggle’s & Mattison’s featured sets and our May 3rd & May 17th shows:
You might notice how ridiculously loud y’all were while poets were trying to do their thing on 5/17, Saginaw. Maybe it was the beer fest that was going on at the same time, maybe it was the heat — whatever the reason, measures will be taken next season to avoid this kind of disrespect to our poets. We’re going to make the space more intimate and we won’t be afraid to hush y’all up when we have to. If you’re not there for the poetry, take your drink next door — and if you are there for the poetry, then show some love and hush your mouth when a poet’s on stage. Geesh!
And just for good measure, you might want to go back and check out the April 12th playlist to see that we finally added the sacrifice and Round 2 of that night.
If you are a faithful follower of the Saginaw Slam, our deepest heartfelt thanks go out to you!! keep coming back! And keep checking in! For Poetry! For Saginaw!!
