In the 90’s, a gig called ‘Openmouth’ pioneered spoken word and performance poetry in Perth. In the 00’s – a gig called ‘Cottenmouth’ was a hub for Perth’s emerging poets and artists of all sorts from Thomás Ford to Amber Fresh. Now in 2018, Perth Slam’s maverick gig-wizard Laundry Man brings you Dirtymouth – something for your heart, your teeth, your feet – a new monthly showcase of live music and spoken word at the Four5Nine Bar.
In May, we’ve got a killer lineup featuring anarcho-cult-punks LAST QUOKKA, Perth’s international spoken word trailblazer MADDIE GODFREY, soul stirring tunes from GRACE ARMSTRONG and a very special collab performance with renowned indigenous actor and poet Maitland Schnaars (THE ENFORCER) and the infamous absent father of Perth performance poetry Allan Boyd (ANTIPOET). PLUS a chance for you to wash yr mouth out on the open mic and win a guest spot at the next event!
Come and check out a brand new corner of the poetry scene; an alternate universe where poetry is just as cool as music…FACEBOOK EVENT
