Green Note Cafe
106 Parkway
Nearest tube: Camden Town

Free for first 8 slammers

We are back at the Green Note and will be kicking off the night with something suitably springlike- be it rain or eggs or chickens. Hosted by Michelle Madsen and Sophia Blackwell.

We are very very excited to welcome....
Salena Godden, host of London's sexiest literary salon, The Book Club Boutique, will be featuring. Salena is a British poet, performer and writer living in North London. Her stories and poetry have appeared in Dazed & Confused, Salzburg Review, Le Gun, Penguin’s IC3, Canongate’s Fire People, Serpents Tail’s Croatian Nights and Hodder & Stoughton’s Oral. She's simply marvellous.

Richard Tyrone Jones’ material ranges from the downright daft, through the witheringly self-deprecating to the poignant and formal, always cut through by a strong vein of sardonic humour, bold leaps of the imagination, a strident voice and a deft touch. He runs the successful ‘Utter!’ spoken word events across London (and Edinburgh 2009: ) with its exciting 'Ajar' Mic contest for new acts. He has hosted the legendary UK Antifolk festivals and runs his own popular (Mis)Guided literary tours of London's suburbs and is the creative genius behind the Sylvia Plath puppet show... not to be missed.

Founding member of Task Force and member of Bury Crew, Chester is a legend of the UK Hip Hop scene. We're very lucky to have him, make the most of it.

Sanwiched happily between Salena and Richard we will of course have...

THE OPEN SLAM- CALLING ALL POETS FROM LONDON AND BEYOND! Come along and test your mettle.. slam rules apply- 3 minutes, original material, no props. We'd love to see you... first 8 on the door get to slam. Sign up early to get a place.
