Yes its a big event this month at the Kurilpa Poets for we are honoured to have as our Feature poet of the Month the legendary performance poet Robin Archbold.
Robin is not only an absurdly talented wordsmith and performer but a major player in keeping the Performance Poetry Scene alive. The only person to ever win both the the Woodford Poetry Slam and Woodford Inspirational Story Award, feature poet at Australian Poetry Slam Final, Qld Poetry Festival, Tasmanian Poetry Festival, Salt on the Tongue Poetry Festival, Gympie Music Festival, Page vs Stage Qld State Library,, founder Sunshine Coast Spoken Word, 2 x Lismore Poetry Cups etc, etc.
Not only did he co-found the esteemed Nimbin Performance Poetry World Cup, which is the premier outlaw performance poetry event in Australia, but he put up $6000 out of his own pocket to launch it. Did I not say he was a legend?
So come along to see this his only Brisbane show, there’s sure to be verbal fireworks aplenty. And did I mention he’s one of our funniest poets?
As well we’ll be having our usual fun and games with the Openest open Mic in town, and the Reverend Hellfire will be entertaining us with his experimental audio-visual poetic projections.
Giving the Reverend a break from Ringmaster duties, Guest MC this month is the dashing young Sasha Cuha from the League of Extraordinary Poets.
And of course there’ll be music in the air provided by our Mystery Musician of the Month, a Kurilpa Poets Institution, where we feature one of our fine local buskers during the interludes.
Tea, coffee and nibblies are provided as part of the entry fee, but we encourage the community minded to bring a plate or bottle or something to add to the spread.
Hope to see you there!
