8PM at the Thirsty Dog, 469 K’rd
Guest Poets: Heidi North Bailey & Jamie Trower
Heidi North-Bailey and Jamie Trower are the two Aucklanders in the fresh new SUBMARINE poetry series. Both are performers on page and stage, Heidi writing intimately of life at home and elsewhere, and Jamie writing of the struggles and strange beauty of disability.
Guest Musician: Kara Gordon
Kara Gordon is called all sorts of things at his gigs: a Maori gypsy, the white Hendrix, a musical genius, part man-part guitar, a mystic playing straight from his soul. One thing is for sure – the man can play. In the process of learning to play Kara has traversed the globe seeking out guitar greats to learn from, fuelled by his ability to master different musical genres from jazz, to blues, classical to hard rock. This rare multi-vernacular ability has shaped his distinct signature sound.
