Right this post is going to be brief. The extremely excellent Ryan Van Winkle asked me if I wanted to do a poetry gig in a van. I knew I'd regret it if I said no. So I said yes. Even though I was a little unsure about how I'd handle the intimacy of a very small audience in a small (but ever so funky) van in the middle of the toon.
I have some themes to keep in mind when choosing and writing my poems - I have a couple already that I know will fit perfectly but I do need to crack on with rehearsing, writing, re-writing, whatever it's going to take to make this gig really special.
Check out http://www.gorillaperfume.com/ to find out some more background about the tour (it's sponsored by those rather lovely people at Lush) and to find out more about the other venues and performers
Take a tour inside the venue - Click here to look inside! I think you'll agree it looks fucking amazing. So if you're in Newcastle town centre on Friday October 12th... Come!
