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,

Cathoel Jorss.

Backwoods,Frontier Poet goes to the Big City. MM, New York Pizza!

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,

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.

Up in the Sky! Is it a BIrd? Is it a plane? NO! It’s..Poetry!!

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.

Matt the busker

Matt the busker

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.

Figures ZEL

Up on the Virtual Gallery‘s Big Screen our “Unsuspected Artist

for the month of November is non other than amiable

underground surrealist


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.
