Upcoming Shows


As we like to say at the Austin Poetry Slam, this is the money round! Tonight, the top ten poets in Austin will compete to make the 2013 Austin Slam Team. These ten Slam-off competitors were selected based on excellence throughout the entire year of weekly shows at the Spiderhouse Ballroom, winnowed down through a series of Quarter and Semi-Final Slams. And as if the competition wasn't enough, we're also going to feature an amazing showcase of Texas poets, including current slammasters, former slam champs, and other surprise guests.

The five poets with the highest scores this evening will represent Austin at the 2013 National Poetry Slam in Boston, MA. These folks win an all-expense paid trip to perform poetry at a national level - how awesome is that?

And as if the competition wasn't enough, we're also going to feature an amazing showcase of Texas poets, including current slammasters, former slam champs, and other surprise guests.
