The UoA Poetry Club is putting on a Music-Poetry Jam Night this week, sponsored by Phantom Billstickers. This could be your chance to belt it out like Mitchie Torres, find your own Shane Grey, and live your Camp Rock Final Jam fantasy.
Performers and fans of poetry and music are invited to ‘jam’ at Cassette Nine at 8 pm on 26 August, with a gold-coin koha entry being collected at the door. Anyone, even non-UoA students, can come along to watch.
As well as showcasing feature performers from the School of Music Students’ Association, Madeleine Worsley, Samantha Cheong, Thuryah Al-Azzawi, and Marianne Leigh, UoA students can sign up to perform. The QR code on the promotional material links to the sign-up form.
“No matter what kind of poetry you’re fond of, spoken word poetry, written poetry, rapping or songwriting, just to name a few, this is your opportunity to share your voice,” says Poetry Club President Rose Yip.
You can sign up to perform on the night, but slots are filling up quickly.
There will be snacks provided, and attendees can purchase a $10 Cassette Nine teapot special, which is usually $15.
