Despite its name, no blood will be spilled at Poetry Deathmatch Cabaret. It's just 11 nights of victimless fun marrying dueling slam poetry with improv. Hosted by Melrose Poetry Bureau — a collective that regularly stages events with poets who work on manual typewriters — Brian Sonia-Wallace, Aman Batra, Bobby Gordon, Nayeli Knudsen, Linda Ravenswood and James Gangl will take topic suggestions from the audience, bang out their poetry on typewriters and then recite their work. After four rounds, the crowd picks a winner. Interspersed between the readings, burlesque dancer Erin Bridges will add some throwback sauciness to the competition.
