Good day, good citizens and followers of the Humble Water Rat!
Though the sun may glare like a billion angry LED bulbs, your unexpected salvation is here!
The Kurilpa Poets have returned for a bold new year of dynamic open mics. For our first gig, we have decided to take our leave from our venerable, ancestral homeland (West End Croquet Club) for February and try something a little more….
Our inaugural gig of 2019 will be held… at the (in?)famous House Conspiracy!
I shall let their bio do the talking:
Brisbane’s only dedicated emerging arts residency space.
House Conspiracy is a new arts and community space for residencies and private use. Located at 42 Mollison St in Brisbane’s central West End, across from where The Burrow once was, we are focused on empowering artists to create a more diverse and vibrant Brisbane. (From their website: http://houseconspiracy.org/house)
Nestled between a rock and a hard development, House Conspiracy is a bold, proud nail-house that stares convention in the face AND SPITS. (For real, they’re actually the nicest, most helpful people you are sure to meet. They host a great variety of arty gigs, workshops and various creative endeavors, doing their utmost to Keep West End Weird). The Kurilpa Poets are honoured that they have allowed us to visit their hallowed chambers, so they may echo with the discordant strains of poetry…
Not to mention the slick stylings and kick-arse vocals of this month’s feature muso: Lucie Garlick!
Check out her performance at Ipswich’s No.1 gig for the cool and unexpected, Solidarity Kulture Club:
Now, to the brass tacks:
- Date and time – Sunday, 24th February, 2-5pm
- Address – 42 Mollison Street, West End (near bloody Coles)
- Entry – FREE!
That’s right, free entry!
However, we will be passing around a donation tin for our feature performer, so please chip in to help live music 🙂
Please note that, as with the Croquet Club, you’re welcome to bring a plate of food to share. However please don’t bring any BYO alcohol, as this interferes with the harmony of artistic integrity (possibly).
Hope to see you there! As always, bring a poem! Bring your bitter words, your musical weapons, and we shall make merry by the light of the afternoon sun!
*Editor’s note – Please ignore my glaring spelling errors. Sorry, Lucie 🙂
