DATE: Thursday, 14th June

DOORS OPEN: 7:30pm

STAGE: Four5Nine Bandroom


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.

Everything’s gonna be COOL in July – national spoken word sensation SUKHJIT KAUR KHALSA is gonna smash your heart open and wake you the hell up. Said Poets’ Society founder and local poetry heart-throb MATT NORMAN will tingle your word bits. You’ll be treated to lashings of pure aussie guitar-folk from NEW NAUSEA and see a special drumless set from dream-grunge cool kids JOYS. PLUS a chance for YOU to wash your 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…
