Upcoming music, poetry & spoken word

I have to say, I’ve really been diggin’ all the poetry/spoken word events I’ve attended over the past year – thanks to my good friend Lizzie Violet. There is so much talent in this city – and you can see and experience so much for little to no $.

Coming up this week: The Beautiful and the Damned music and poetry cabaret at Glad Day Bookshop (598A Yonge St., Toronto) on Thurs, Sept 13 from  7 – 10 p.m., hosted by DM Moore. This month’s hounoured dead celeb is Gore Vidal, and the featured line-up includes David Bateman, Jacob Scheier and Jessica Speziale. There are open mic slots available too – get there early to sign up.

Kirk DeMatas (who read at Smash Words at The Press Club last month) will be launching his collection of poems Conversations with Skeletons at Glad Day on Sat, Sept 15 from 6-8 p.m.

Save the date: Saturday, September 29 7 p.m. till Sunday, September 30 7 a.m. for this year’s Nuit Blanche. Lizzie Violet will be reading selections of her horror poetry at the Theatre Local at their space at Artscape Wychwood Barns at 3:30 a.m. As part of their fundraising drive for this event, they’re selling button portraits of the participating artists!
