"Ink" Hardcore Spoken Word
Past Shows (2)
"The Svelte" Miss Spelt is a local slam poet who feels passionately about open mics (as about many things -- passionate opinions are grist for the slam poetry mill), spelling out that regardless of who your favourite performer is, there's a very good chance that they got their show-business start on open mic night at some hole-in-the-wall. And while our Commercial Drive locus of cafes serves the poetry needs of a certain (hippified, dandified, Ani-Difrancofied) segment of the population well, he's concerned that some of the down'n'outers among whom he considers many members of his tribe, people who might benefit the most from the often-powerful messages poetry has to offer (and people with some of the most powerful messages to offer), aren't being reached in its present zone of distribution. If they for whatever reason aren't getting out to the poetry, he's taken it upon himself to bring the poetry to them.
