The best reason in the world to start drinking early in the Phoenix on a Wednesday night is to get a decent seat at the Phoenix from one of Canberra’s two poetry slams.
Facebook has details:
Have you been to BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT!?
BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! is the poetry slam that wants your words on stage for two minutes for 1st prizes.
And to enable this you get one stage, five judges, much sound, many audience, twice the microphone, The Sound Guy, multiple MCs, The Score Adder, very much prize giving, The Master of Conflict, multiplied feature acts, and two minutes on the stage.
That is right, all those things for your words, ‘cause we want ‘em, whatever they are, all of ’em, packed into two entire minutes…
And this month we bring acts, feature acts! FEATURE ACTS.
Feature Act One is STACKHAT [TIM KENT].
Feature Act Two is GOLDEN ORB.
And filling The Hadley Memorial Slots is the poet AK-Pyjamas!
So be at BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! at the Phoenix Pub in the Civic bus interchange, sign-up from 730pm, with your original words, no props, no music, two minutes, for prizes and more prizes.
