March Master of Ceremonies & part time Plague Doctor, the Reverend Hellfire welcomes you all to join the Kurilpa Water Rats at our Emergency Pandemic Poetry/Vector Event, as they spread Poems for the Plague
and Verse for the Hearse!
First off the carts is our Feature Poet for this month, veteran Northern Rivers poet, the ever affable Vince Stead.
Amongst other things Vince is the Winner of the coveted People’s Choice Award at the Nimbin World Performance Poetry Cup in 2016 and 2019, as well as People’s Choice winner in the 2019 Lismore Poetry Cup.
Covering an eclectic range of subjects, Vince writes accessable Poetry with Heart and a sly sense of humour that hooks you & reels you right in.
Look forward to a singular session of wicked & worthy wordplay from our poetic country cousin.
featured as Mystery Musicians of the Month, the Kurilpa Poets got their first ever noise complaint (from a Supreme Court Judge no less!) and police halted the set! But that was at the Sitting Duck and now we have returned to the cosmopolitan, anything-goes-vibe of the olde Croquet Club where this time, hopefully, they will be able to complete their set without interruption.
Which would be nice as the ‘Loops will be launching their new single, (based on a poem by Charles Baudelaire and a riff stolen from Jerry Lee Lewis!) the engagingly entitled
“The Litanies of Television”
and to mark the occasion will be giving away to the first 6 patrons a limited edition CD of their new song plus all four songs from the rare, first TAPELOOPS ep
“Fire in Heaven”.
Don’t forget to bring your own Poetry/Words/Music to share in Open Mic, and if you feel like bringing a bottle or packet or plate of something nice to contribute to the Feast, that’d be peachy keen!
