Guest Poet: Simone Kaho
Simone Kaho is a performance poet who has appeared in scores of poetry shows including; The Kerouac Effect, Theoradical Hobohemians, Spit it Out and the Literrati.
Her favourite muso and poet collaborators will be joining her for some wickedly musical and visual bits bringing a ukulele, electro beats and possibly a trampoline.
Simone’s poetry has been called angular and tough – her written worlds are filled with animals, trees and people interacting but not as they should and often at night when it’s not safe; some poems sing – others attack.
Her work has been published in JAAM, Turbine and The Dominion Post.
Guest Musician: Karen Hunter
Karen Hunter takes her audience on a sublime musical journey with evocative melodies that draw from a fusion of world music and rootsy grooves. Karen loops voice, guitar, mandolin & soul-fiddle to create heart charged soundscapes blending her many influences in an entertaining and original fashion.
Open mic: all welcome to read/perform
MCs: Kiri and Rachael
