LONDON: Hammer and Tongue

Monday, June 1st, 2009, 7.30pm-11pm, £5/£4
Green Note Cafe,
106 Parkway

Michelle Madsen and Sam Berkson present Hammer and Tongue's last London gig of the season. You may have thought that Hammer and Tongue had retired to a tent in a muddy field for the summer after last month's slam final, which saw the excellent MC Angel storm to victory. But no...before throwing ourselves into the inevitably damp festival season we are back at the Green Note with a transatlantic showcase featuring a clutch of our favourite poets from both sides of the pond.

The excellent Mike McGee and Derrick Brown have flown in all the way from the States to delight and appall with their irreverent witticisms and we are delighted to be welcoming to the stage some of the best poets performing in London at the moment:
Jacob Sam le Rose...London Youth slam artistic director and poet extraordinaire
Andreas Grant...High class/crass/camp king of the unexpected
Sara Bynoe.. Canadian teen angst queen
Tuggstar.... international slam winner and journalist

Arrive early to secure a seat and make sure you get your fill of cake. We may also have a couple of open mic slots available on the night - drop Michelle an email for more details on
