LONDON: Apples & Snakes in Soho featuring Kate Tempest

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011, 8pm, £8/£6/£6 under 26Soho Theatre,
21 Dean Street,

Kate Tempest is not so much a poet as an invisible force that knocks you over and leaves you thinking “Where did that come from?” Her praises are sung high and wide from the likes of Roots Manuva and Scroobius Pip (the highlight of my listening year) to the BBC and the RSC. Whether spitting solo or fronting her band (The Sound Of Rum), she’s fast, furious, and surely has something to say. Sharing the bill are poetry peeress Lady Rhymes , serio-comic storyman ZK the Poet and gritty newcomer G.R.E.Ed.S. It’s a show of four halves - all brilliant, all indisputably poetic. The Apples & Snakes in Soho series is an opportunity for audiences to see top-flight poets and writers alongside newer pioneers from the spoken-word scene.
