Good Shout – Monthly Poetry Open-mic

7 March @ 19:00-22:30 GMT

Oh, Hi March…we’d better smash it then!
Good Shout is held at Here We Aren’t, Godric Square every first Thursday of the month; pay what you feel, doors at 6.45pm, start at 7pm.
So how does this affect you?
Are you a poet? Come and do some words.
Spoken Word and Poetry open mic, first come, first served. 10 minute max per poet, but priority is given to new performers and those who travel!
If you would like to perform, get in touch via facebook, or just turn up on the night and sign up on the door!
This month we are joined by the punk as folk James Domestic!
James Domestic grew up in Essex, is a songwriter, musician, DJ, painter, poet, and punk. He holds a doctorate from the University of Essex, has toured the world and elsewhere with The Domestics, and made records with more bands than is healthy or sensible.
James has two full collections of poetry published by Earth Island Books, alongside inclusions – some forthcoming – in other publications via Little Bear Publications, and Backroom Poetry. He has many performances booked this year, all over the country. Most notably with esteemed poet Luke Wright, and with punk legends, Subhumans.
His poetry has been likened to John Cooper Clarke, Ivor Cutler, Spike Milligan and Benjamin Zephaniah, amongst others.
“A sardonic, sarcastic wit, a penchant for the surreal, and a dynamic pace” (Nathan Brown, Louder Than War)
“Words that bite, belch, and bleed in their brilliance” (Mark Grist, multi-award-winning poet and star of Channel 4’s ‘Mr Drew’s School for Boys’)
“A unique collection of poetic ventures into the human condition, with humour, anger, and a canny use of language: inspired and inspiring!” (Dick Lucas, Subhumans, Culture Shock etc.)
“Relentless” (Attila the Stockbroker, social surrealist poet and songwriter)
