Mashed Poetics is a night of spoken word and music mash up. Poets are asked to write new work based on a song from the album we choose and we have a live band to play all the songs. Poets perform in between the tunes.
The next show is Saturday Jan 27th at Café Deux Soleils and we feature the late 80s classic Full Moon Fever by Tom Petty.
Here is the list of poets and songs in order of performance. I hope you can join us for a night of classic rock and roll
Free Fallin--Renee Saklikar
I Won't Back Down--Isaac Bond
Love is a Long Road--Rabbit Richards
Face in the Crowd--Jano
Runnin' Down a Dream--Jasleen Powar
I'll Feel a Whole Lot Better--Ellie Sawatzky
Yer so Bad--Darry Danzig
Depending on You--Donna Dykeman
Apartment Song--Harriet Wilder
Alright For Now--Emory Oakley
Mind With a Heart of its Own--Ayanda Lyric Mgoduka
Zombie Zoo--RC Weslowski
It's sliding scale $10-$15 at the door but of course no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
We acknowledge this event will be taking place on the unceded territories of the Squamish, Musqueam and Tsleil-Waututh peoples.
We also strive to have trans friendly events and we hope you can assist us in doing so.
below is a link to a google doc providing accessibility information to the venue but it is from 2009. There will be a wheelchair ramp available for anyone who needs to use it to access the stage.
