A packed theatre, a line of over twenty poets wanting to compete, a hastily written up media release form, what was going on? The Newcastle heat of the Australian Poetry Slam is what was going on! A cracking night of wordplay, comedy, karate rhymes and profanity laced fuck ups, this year’s heat was bursting with talent, tyrannical crowd judging and the scintillating sound of finger clicks of appreciation. K-Rock slayed the intermissionary periods with some sweet soulful tunes and even instigated a four person on stage dance party at the end of the night. Host and 2013 slam champion Jesse John Brand never failed to entertain and prevailed over the poor handwriting of David Graham when announcing the next contestant.
