NEWS AND GIGS – SPRING 2016
Happy 2016! Back in December 2015, I finally won the Brighton Hammer and Tongue Grand Final, which is something I’ve been vaguely trying to do for the past ten years. Which means that for the next eleven months, based on an utterly arbitrary judgement, I can call myself the Best Poet in Brighton. Which I probably will do now and again.
I’ve got a fair few gigs coming up in the next three months or so – here’s the details:
Thursday 28th Jan – 13th Annual Poets vs MCs – Concorde 2, Brighton
The legendary and absurd poets vs rappers battle reaches its 13th year. I’m going to be on the poets team for possibly the 8th time. Expect world-serious battle rhymes, artistic mayhem and metaphorical blood. £4/3. EVENT PAGE.
Saturday 13th Feb – The Lovers Circus – The Basement, Brighton
A fundraiser for the Hummingbird Project, I’ll be joining acts including the Lovely Brothers and Gramski in an evening of entertainment, romance and mayhem. I’m going to be doing some poems and also compering, assuming I can remember the names of all the acts. £4. EVENT PAGE.
Monday 15th Feb – 451 – Nuffield, Southampton
I’m joining the incredible Hannah Silva for a Southampton-poetry-double-header arranged by the unstoppable Pete Hunter from Apples and Snakes. It’s going to be like nothing you’ve ever seen before unless you’ve seen me before and Hannah Silva before and you’ve been to Southampton before. £5/3. EVENT PAGE.
Tuesday 22nd March – The Poetry Archivist – LONDON
More details TBC on this one, but essentially I’m heading into the hip heart of the Big Smoke to do some poems. More details & event page to follow.
I do try and keep this website vaguely updated, but it’s worth ‘liking’ my Facebook page if you’re keen to get the latest information as sometimes I’ll just post on here and forget that this website actually exists.
I’ve been trying to make some videos of me doing poems – I’d imagined these in my head as being some awesome hectic video-collages all edited together with me growling over the top, but in the end all I did was make a very quick video of me rambling about seals in my front room. Still, if that’s your sort of thing, you can watch it here:
