Sign up is at 7:30. Show starts at 8. 10 open mic slots, 10 poetry slam slots. Evening usually starts off with two open mic performers, then alternates between poetry slam contestants and open mic performers.
First and second place in the poetry slam get a cash prize, third place gets a rubber chicken (hence the name of the event).
So at 7:30 I walk in and there's a list with 12 names on it already. No one's in line cuz they are local and connected and on the list already. Another newbie couple and I directly left for good. How about a drawing for the order? No. How about first timers are at the front of the list? No. How about the list doesn't go out early with your buddies on it already? No.
Don't waste your time here.
