Has an Open Mic?
If you are a writer and have an erotic or gothic poem, excerpt or other performance piece to share, please contact Miriam on: [email protected]
Come join us at this funky dive bar for an evening of gothic & erotic spoken-word performance. Cringe, squirm, shudder, gasp, sigh with pleasure, and grin with naughty delight as our talented array of performers take the stage and leave you speechless with WORD-SHOCK!
In collaboration with Little Raven Publishers.
Spoken-Word/Performance Poets: Amy Bodossian, Peter Salvatore Mathews, Amanda Marx, James WF Roberts.
Actor: Emma Louise
DRESS: Op-shop classics! Come dressed in your favorite op shop outfit and get into the dive bar spirit of things! (Extra points for retro ties and gaudy plastic jewellery!)
FOOD & DRINK
Station 59 has a well-stocked, reasonably priced bar and meals and snack are available on order. The door cost goes to the performers, not the venue, so please do buy drinks or they might get grumpy at us. 🙂
