|D. Colin, Slamin'|
I had seen Rainmaker (Peter Charles Seaton) perform at UGT last week & he was back tonight as the Nitty Gritty Slam's first Featured Poet. He began with a bar poem/love poem, playing on names of drinks & beers, strung together in his breathless, surging ahead style. Also in the same style was "Move Me" (on spoken word performance), & the political "Uncle Sam is my grandfathter…" He thought he was done, but Mojavi called him back to the stage to perform an erotic piece, "Please Let Me" done in a slowed down version of his usual style.
When Dain Brammage took the stage to host the Slam (& perform his "Slam Poem" with unbidden help from the audience, i.e., me) he had forgotten to select a "sacrificial lamb", so Rainmaker came back again to perform another piece in his interchangable style.
