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 March, we kick things off with Pakistan Poetry Slam’s globe-trotting spoken word legend ZAINAB SYED, local veteran of the page and stage SCOTT-PATRICK MITCHELL, Spoken Word Perth’s rising star SAOIRSE NASH, tunes from Bell’s Rapids’ TANAYA HARPER and rock and roll from inner-city cool kids TROLLEY BOY.
PLUS a chance for you to wash yr mount out on the open mic.
Come and check out a brand new corner of the poetry scene; an alternate universe where poetry is just as cool as music…
