It’s going ON in June y’all. You just don’t know… yet. See, every year since ’99 Oakland has proudly sent a team to represent the Town at The National Poetry Slam. Each year The Oakland Slam, along with their Bay Area counterparts, has hosted a competition called the Battle of The Bay (B.o.B.) to further hone their formidable skills and strategy. The B.o.B. is a series of team Slams with events thrown by venues in Oakland, SF, Berkeley & San Jose.
