Some say POEMcees, while others say poEMCEES. The controversy has led to widespread wordsmith on wordsmith violence that dates back to before time itself. We have only bits and pieces of information but what we know for certain is that at some point in early existence all of consciousness was united in celebration. We marveled at our own magnificence as we gave birth to The Word. We don't know who struck first, The POEMcees or The poEMCEES, but we know it was the poEMCEES who lit the roof on fire.

The 3rd consecutive installment of POEMCEES at CFSW, will feature the Edmonton based show that fuses the not so different worlds of the poet and the emcee. This time around we are choosing to take a look at how our contemporary society has replaced reality with symbols and signs, thus creating a simulation of reality. This show will be a "mixtape" style show mixed by DJ Seiiizmikk and featuring A and B sides performed by King Kimbit, Tribe of Ansar, Poetic Elements, and KazMega.
