19th June 2018 @ Poetrylive

8PM at the Thirsty Dog, 469 K’rd

Our guests this week are no strangers to the Poetry Live stage and are favourites among the PL audience…

Guest Poet: Dog RL

Our featured poet you know as Dog RL, the Poet who performs without a mic! Dog is also known as Peter Thumath – “I live in a house on the edge of the hill where the kohekohe grows. I work at a steel mill and in my spare time plant things and catch fish and sometimes make stuff or travel or write. I love words. I love the sound of them the taste the feel the way they fit together the rhythm the flow. I love their meanings and their hidden meanings and how they can conjure emotion while not saying anything. How they hurt if not used wisely yet still can heal and sing and play. And how the learning never stops.”

Guest Musician: Brendan and Alison Turner

Our guest musicians this week are Brendan and Alison Turner, long time members of the PL whanau, back to wow us with their original acoustic Folk and Country Blues from a goat farm at the bottom of the world.

Open Mic as always, can’t wait to see you all there 🙂

Open Mic: all welcome to read/perform
