Stand Up and Spit presents: Poetry, Punk and Pints – boozy night of raucous poetry, rambunctious punk rock and rollicking records at Mascara Bar.
Poetry from Emily Harrison, Ash Sarkar, Tim Wells, Sarah Fletcher, and kickin’ punk rock from Shocks of Mighty.
Special guest DJ (don’t call him love, he doesn’t believe in it) Ray Gange, and Nick Tesco DJing, expect a song from The Member.
Our poets will be riding either a monkey or a tiger onto stage. Hell yes!
No door pressure. Late bar and toilets.
Tim Wells is made of reggae, lager top, pie and mash, and Leyton Orient FC. As ‘Teething Wells’ he was an original teenage ranting poet. Since long trousers he has published several poetry collections, Everything Crash published by Penned in the Margins, being the most recent. He runs the Stand Up and Spit blog.
