Where – Mercury Lounge
When – Saturday, January 26th, 2013

Last year’s championship show sold out to the point that there was a crowd listening outside the door. With that in mind, you may wish to get there early, in order to make sure you get a seat.
This year, 2012 champs Sepideh and Festrell will hand off their crowns to new champions, while their co-champs, Elle P and D-Lightfull will take the stage to compete once more.
The competition will be stiff, the poetry will be powerful.
You don’t want to miss this show.
