At Dirtymouth IV, guest host/programmer Saoirse Nash (Spoken Word Perth) brings you 2016 WA Slam Champion Luka Buchanan, the raw, modern poetics of AJ Brian, a solo set from local mischief-maker Hannah Mae of Hannah Mae & the Hoodwinks and anti-folk wackiness from WABISABI. PLUS – a chance for you to get out of the rain and get warm and weird on the open mic*!
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.
Come and check out a brand new corner of the poetry scene; an alternate universe where poetry is just as cool as music…
*we wanna hear your rants, napkin manifestos and drunken texts – sign up on the night before 8pm, limited spots, strict four minute limit. One open micer will be offered a GUEST SPOT at our next gig!
