Hey there Water Rats and fellow Travellers!
We’ve got a really great show to finish up 2014
with a bang so make sure you don’t miss this one.
Our feature poet is non-other than expatriate-Brisbanite
now Berlin-based Poet,
The Kurilpa Poets are proud to host this
her only Brisbane appearance
to launch her new volume of verse;
“Comb the Sky with Satellites It’s Still a Wilderness”
Check out Cathoel’s site at http://houseoflovers.com,
and for a lovely video featuring her music at
and Tune in to the Kurilpa Poets Facebook Page
on Monday night, 24th November, 9pm
to join in to the conversation/interview with
Cathoel Jorss and the Reverend Hellfire, when they’ll
be talking Art, Poetry, Travel and her new book.
Once part of Brisbane’s legendary Bohemian Cafe Poetry Scene,
this restless free-spirit has subsequently
been wandering the world and leaving in her wake a trail
of whimsical yet emotionally charged Poetry, Music and Art.
Yes, don’t forgo this one-off opportunity to see Cathoel
in action and get your own, personally
signed copy of “Comb the Sky“
Our Mystery Musician for the occasion is no mystery to our regular patrons,
for it is non-other than one
of the Water Rats’ favourite Mystery Muso’s,
he of the flame red slide-geetar,
Mr Matt Barnes.
When we first met Matt he was busking the corner
of Vulture and Boundary. Now he can often be found
groovin’ at the Boundary Hotel on Friday nights
with popular West End Institution-in-his-Own-Right,
Blind Dog Donnie. But Matt still loves
playing for the Kurilpa Poets and it’s always
a special occasion for us when he appears.
Paris, Texas? Nahh. Come down to the olde Croquet Hall.
Up on the Virtual Gallery‘s Big Screen our “Unsuspected Artist“
for the month of November is non other than amiable
Check out the Water Rat Gazette post on Zel
for a sample of his Visionary Madness.
As always it’s a mere $5 to get in, all refreshments and entertainment
is free thereafter and there’s free onsite parking.
Seeing as how it’s our break-up gig it would be nice
if people brought a plate or bottle to contribute to the Festivities.
And most important don’t forget to
bring your own poems (or indeed someone elses’
writing that your fond of) and share them
during our famously informal OPEN MIC Sessions.
