8PM at the Thirsty Dog, 469 K’rd
Guest Poet: Kirsti Whalen
Kirsti Whalen is from Auckland by way of Melbourne, Scotland, Austria and a couple of pit stops on the side. Though once employed as a camel farmer and laughing yoga instructor, she now studies creative writing and works in disability support and advocacy. Her work has been widely published across the world, but she’s most proud of her work at The Pantograph Punch, and a 2014 shortlisting for the Sarah Broom Poetry Prize.
Guest Musician: Brendan and Alison Turner
There might be something wrong with Brendan & Alison Turner. As former members of Bond Street Bridge and The Bitter Years, they developed a strange love of driving long distances across the country, playing a mix of Americana/Folk/Country/Blues, with sweet bluegrass harmonies and songs where everybody gets shot. All of this to small crowds of people for very little money. This seems to keep them happy and mostly out of trouble.
