Last night, I had the great privilege of being a judge at Massachusetts Louder than a Bomb finals. The room was electric! This sold-out, standing-room-only crowd was pumped and jacked for this event, which brought together four teams from the cities of Somerville/Boston, Peabody, Newburyport, and Worcester to compete in this spoken word competition for high school students. After four tough individual rounds and a group round, the team from Worcester took the title! All the teams were tremendous, but Worcester earned that trophy.
Here's a photo taken at intermission. Last night's event was held in Villa Victoria in Boston's South End. Excellent turnout. Packed from start to finish.
Big ups to Amanda Torres, Alex Charalambides, Regie Gibson, Ayano Strickland, Jade Sylvan, and Anna West for making it happen.
