Has an Open Mic?
Be pleasantly challenged and inspired at ‘Be Mused’ – Poetry & Humanity at ‘The Resistance’ – Bar & Café in the heart of Hawthorn. This event was founded and is hosted by local poet Cheung-Ling Wong with a varied guest list of poets with two open mic segments available for all interested poets and lovers of the muses. Chill-out with a Rastafarian vibe on the bean bags downstairs in the large basement shisha lounge that also serves as the poetry reading space. This monthly event is free but cash donations are encouraged as this event is an official fundraiser for the Australian Red Cross and all the good humanitarian work they do around Australia and the world. ‘The Resistance’ is right next to Glenferrie train station and Glenferrie Rd trams.
The June Edition of a monthly spoken word event. At these events, Magic Steven performs a spoken word set about whatever has happened in the past month.
Special Guests this month: Emma Russack + DJ Nigel (HTRK)
