BootSlam will be the usual all-comers performance poetry throw-down with a $50 Grand Prize and kooky prizes for second and third place winners. New Poem New Year continues, so world premiere poems presented in the first round will earn you one extra point. It’s also your last chance to see the members of the Spokane Slam Team before they head to Oakland for the National Poetry Slam the very next day. Sign ups at 7 p.m. Where: Boots Bakery and Lounge; 24 W Main Ave. Cost: $5 to compete; $5 suggested donation for audience Ages: ALL AGES* *Spokane Poetry Slam does not censor for content.
