Macalester and U of M face off in poetry slam

And here I thought the Minneapolis Library had the corner on great battles, with its “Which is better: Twilight or Harry Potter?” debate. But no, another great showdown is in the offing this Saturday, with poetry slam teams from both Macalester and the University of Minnesota taking the stage, or in this case, the basement of Dupre Dorm (at Macalester).

Both campuses are sending teams to the College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational (CUPSI) at Emerson College in Boston this April. This weekends national-style competition is meant to raise funds for the trip; admission is $5 at the door.

Doors open at 7pm, with an open-mic at 7:30 and the competition getting underway at 8pm.
