In a regular poetry slam, the poet must perform a poem of their own, of any style, within a time limit without the aid of props or music. 5 randomly selected audience members will become judges and are given score cards to score the poet from zero to 10. The poets with the highest scores after 2 rounds of poems are the winners of cash prizes. Every slam has 10-12 spots open for poets with the top 5 going on to the 2nd round. check out www.vanslam.ca for more up to date and in-depth details of rules!

Cafe Deux Soleils and the Van Slam strive to be a trans friendly place and a hate speech free zone. Help us with that. We also acknowledge that this event takes place on unceded First Nations Territory.

Classic Water
Wednesday, April 29
Doors 830, Show 9
$6 Cover

The songs of Classic Water bring to mind driving through dusty backroads of deserted villages, thinking back on what once was but will never be again. The surreal words of singer Tom Gerritsen are guided by stretches of intertwining melodies, alternated with brief bursts of rock and roll. In an earlier life, Tom released folk music as The T.S. Eliot Appreciation Society, playing over 180 shows in Europe. Seeing Classic Water perform live is a visceral experience. The debut album Concrete Pleasures was recorded and produced by Stacy Parrish (T Bone Burnett, Alison Krauss & Robert Plant) in a 14th century farmhouse in Sweden.
