Hammer and Tongue Hackney Tuesday January 3rd
Zena Edwards: Hackney born, Tottenham bred, Zena is ‘one of London’s most unique voices’ – fusing jazzy hiphop and African instrumentation as a soundtrack to words that have shared stages with (and very much held their own) likes of Linton Kwesi Johnson, Jean ‘Binta’ Breeze, Roger McGough and Lemn Sissay.
Jonny Fluffypunk: Hackney born, Buckinghamshire rasied, Jonny quit the home countires for a life as a wandering poet and voice for anarchy, peace and bicycles. Now with added surreal reminiscence and twisted autobiography, Jonny has been dragging his glorious bag of poems, stories, off-kilter banter and mysterious ‘other stuff’ around the UK performance poetry and alternative cabaret circuits for over 10 years.
Plus open mic slam for chance to win place in 2012’s final and the incomparable DJ Xahdrez. All for £5/4. Bargain!
