BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! @ The Phoenix, 730PM Wednesday 19 October

THIS IS THE OCTOBER TWENTY-ELEVEN INSTALMENT OF BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT!

And while my car doesn’t fly, in fact it doesn’t even move anymore, and I still have to eat my caramel space food sticks on earth because I am not a billionaire

THIS IS THE FUTURE!

And in this future we give you a microphone, 2 minutes, a Score Adder and Time Keeper, an audience, A MASTER OF CONFLICT, five judges, a stage, and a pub full of beer, whiskey, cider and rye, and two MCs

ALL SO YOU CAN GIVE US YOUR WORDS.
BECAUSE THIS IS A POETRY SLAM, WITH PRIZES!

‘cause glory is not enough this month we have prizes from:
Impact Comics
Mind Games
Smiths Alternative Bookstore
Anything someone gives us to give away and the Master of Conflict does not successfully steal
Whatever we find going cheap outside the fruit and vege shop
And stuff from our newest sponsor, THE OXFAM SHOP!
YES YOU READ CORRECT, INSTEAD OF BUYING THINGS FROM THE OXFAM SHOP SO CHILDREN IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES CAN GROW CROPS AND GO TO SCHOOL YOU CAN WIN IT
FOR FREE.
Thanks Oxfam Shop.

Now we know it is all about the prizes but stay with us because this month

we bring you a feature act of POETRY
but not just any PERFORMER of POETRY
not just any WORDS of POETRY PERFORMANCE
not just some poet whose mum told him he was special too much or not enough and he believed it

NO

This performer is one of the founders of performance poetry and slam in Australia
He has featured at the Brisbane Writers, Sydney Writers, Byron Bay Writers, Tasmanian Poetry, Broken Hill Poetry, Woodford Folk, and QLD Poetry Festivals
This poet is the unholy ghost of Iggy Pop and Marc Kelly Smith (so what!!)
He has featured at the birthplace of slam, the Green Mill in Chicago, and where one mid-wife of slam hangs-out, the Bowery Poetry Club in New York
This spoken word artist is Ghostboy

And Ghostboy is Spoken Weird.

So be at BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! 730pm at the Phoenix, sign-up for words, sign-up for judging, sign-up for prizes, sign-up for yelling, sign-up.
And remember no props, no music, original material and 2 minutes.

THIS IS THE FUTURE!
