Slamming the Anthropocalypse - interview with 2 BC poets.

on their way thorugh the region on a cross continental Anthropocalypse tour, BC slam poets Johnny MacRae & shayne avec i grec, stopped by CKMS for a quick interview before their kitchener performance.

we talk about their tour, their latest work and how it builds on the anthropocalypse is nye album, why they slam and do poetry and what the anthropocalypse is. 

from their web page: ...

More likely to be found trekking through the woods than cruising the streets rockin’ fly rims, 2 Dope Boys in a Cadillac are individually known as Johnny MacRae & shayne avec i grec.  Together, MacRae and avec i grec have been a member of the 2005 Victoria slam team and the 2009 and 2010 Van Slam teams, as well as being a long time organizer of Victoria’s Tongues of Fire.  They were also the 2010 Van Slam champion.  Driving under the influence of Bob Holman’s tequila, these 2 Dope Boys have been described as “challenging,” and are said to “push envelopes wherever they are.”

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
