8PM at the Thirsty Dog, 469 K’rd
Guest Poet: Sophie Procter
Sophie: “I’m a storyteller, poet, and I make kick-ass coffees. The coffees pay the rent, plus I get to interact with so many crazy and interesting people. I’m always listening and always learning and very often practicing the virtue of patience….Writing and creating is what pays my soul, and with that I get to express and leave a little something in this world that hopefully ignites a spark in others.”
Sophie had her visual poetry exhibited just this weekend in group show, vīsuālis at the NZ Poetry Conference and Festival, and her poetry collection is in its last proofing stage which will be launched in the new year.
Guest Musician: Jessy Wadeson
With 20 years of various singing and songwriting experience ranging from musical theatre to old school blues and solo travelling musical journeys, Jessy has recently moved to Auckland and started a band with a bunch of rad young lads. There is some sexy soul going on and things are gonna get bigger. This night, Jessy will be performing solo once more.
