Soon I will be in Australia! Shortly afterwards, I’ll be in a basement in Brisbane:

Brisbane Festival and QLD Poetry Festival present “Basement Late Nights”

The Basement at Metro Arts will be transformed into a subterranean bar with late-night gigs featuring immersive music experiences, chats with artists, poetry and happenings hosted by locals.

Venture down and you may just come across some festival artists relaxing or find yourself dancing in the dark with a bunch of strangers.

Wed 11 Sep, from 9.30pm – TONGUES OF FLAME hosted by Ghostboy

Join host David Stavanger aka Ghostboy hosting an evening of sensual sound and spoken word presented in association with Queensland Poetry Festival. Along with special guests: spoken word artist Eleanor Jackson, installation poet Ryan Van Winkle (Edinburgh), boho storyteller Adam Hadley (Mr Fibby), angular pop sharks The Stress of Leisure (duo mode) and the mysterious DJ Zaziz. Ghostboy will take the night on an interactive journey that will be part performance poetry theatre, part surrealist vaudeville, part dark comedy, all spoken weird. Once you enter, there is no turning back. Expect the unexpected. Let the words take flight.
