Final SpeedPoets for 2010 this Sunday (December 5)

SpeedPoets wraps up nine wordbending years this Sunday December 3 at InSpire Gallery Bar (71 Vulture Street, West End), with a gig that is bound to leave you more satiated than being left alone with the christmas ham!

Softly spoken, poetry sojourner Nick Powell will read from his brand spanking, limited edition chapbook and the honeyed voice of Shelley Evans (The Horse Darkly), will deliver a spellbinding set of acoustic songs.

You can get a taste of Nick Powell’s work here at Cordite and here at WordPlay. And here’s a clip from The Horse Darkly’s debut album, Getaway Car:

There will also be the regular feast of Open Mic, live sounds from the SpeedPoets engine room of Sheish Money, free zines, raffles/giveaways and much, much more!

So make sure you are there to raise a glass to Brisbane’s longest running poetry event, as this will be the last gig until March 2011 when it will be time to celebrate 10 years of SpeedPoets… big times ahead.
 
SpeedPoets, Sunday December 5, 2:00pm – 5:30pm, InSpire Gallery Bar – 71 Vulture St. West End. Entry is a gold coin donation
