Announcing! The Inaugural Big Sexy Bongo Club Slam! (Hosted by yours truly, R&B)

So, Friday was just lovely, wasn’t it? Shufted from our regular venue at The Counting House [for a concert for sick kids – Ed.], the newly opened Bongo Club rose to the occasion and saved our hides. And it made for a wonderful, spine tingling evening of spraff, gob and feist […are those even words? -Ed.], with a surprisingly political bent as We Called Upon The Authors to Explain. Photos/evidence forthcoming…

IN THE MEANTIME!

We loved working with The Bongo so much that we’re coming back to host their inaugural Big Sexy Poetry Slam as part of their (re)opening celebrations on 3rd May. There will be PRIZES! There will be CELEBRITY JUDGES…*Hannah McGill!*…*Alan Bissett*…*Kirsty Logan*! There will be MUSIC…*the delectable Hailey Beavis*! There will be a wild and wonderful AUDIENCE […that’s you lot…]! And most of all there will be POETRY!!!

Come + see the following wonderful poets battle it out to be the Bongo Club Slam Champion…scream for your favourite, your lung power counts y’know…
