Dirtymouth heads into wildflower season for a full-on, full-hearted, full-bodied rosé of a night in the Four5Nine. Jazzy bluesy good times provided fresh from Freo by BASS LEMON, experimental percussion and weirdness from MICHAEL STRONG – plus poetry from writer and refugee-rights activist MARZIYA MOHAMMEDALI and Spoken Word Perth’s free-wheelin’ road-trippin’ KATIE BENNETT. We’ll also have our usual 4-minute open mic so you can get up and read your myths, manifestos and drunken texts.
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 monthly showcase of live music, spoken word and open mic at the Four5Nine Bar.
This event will be held on Nyoongar Boodja. Always was and always will be Aboriginal Land.
Doors open 7:30pm, entry $5 for concession otherwise $10.
