We hear that madness and badness returns to The Phoenix this Wednesday for the best free night in town:

BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! launches into August The Month of Mystery.

With two microphones, a stage, an audience, judges, The Score Adder, Shakespeare, Prizes and your choice of beer, cider, spirits or water and cordial or water without cordial. This is BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! and this is August the month of Mystery.

And BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! will be featuring the mysterious:

That Guy Named After an Apple

This is our first mystery feature act. Not much is known about That Guy Named After an Apple, he is after all a man of mystery. But his name tells you that “That Guy” could = Dude and that “Named After an Apple” could = Pink Lady. Yes, BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! could be bringing you Dude, Pink Lady. It will be…mysterious.

And BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! will bring you our second act feature act of mystery, straight from The Columbia:

Finnigan and Brother

Finnigan and Brother is the duo of siblings Chris (guitar/FX) and David Finnigan (words/radio/visuals). Finnigan and Brother first performed live at the 2009 Multicultural Fringe Festival in the Canberra. Their work featured in the launch edition of digital zine Goofbang, and their music has been featured on Sydney’s FBI Radio by New Weird Australia and Sunday Night at the Movies. They are currently in Medellin, Colombia, to work at the Campos de Gutierrez artist residency space on a series of new compositions. Then they will be in The Phoenix

So bring your words ‘cause we want them on stage because BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! is a poetry slam full of mystery.

And remember, no props, original material, no music, your words, on stage, 2 minutes, at The Phoenix Pub.
