21 Aug 2010: ANTIPOET at the Moon

We've dragged him into town from the outer suburbs to perform for you... on a short break from tree planting, movie-starring, rocking, facebooking, web design, activism, parenting and teaching at some university or other... the one and only ANTIPOET! AKA allan boyd. 2-4pm Saturday 21 August at The Moon, 323 William St, Northbridge. Plus open mike. There will be two bursts of boydtext, one in each half, so those who insist on rocking up halfway thru will miss half the action.


allan boyd (the antipoet)... for those who don't know...

has been delivering performance poetry at and organising dynamic poetry arts and music events since 1995.

He has performed his "difficult and acerbic words" as featured guest of the Queensland Poetry Festival; Melbourne Overload Poetry Festival; Newcastle This Is Not Art; Electrofringe and National Young Writers Festivals; the WA Poetry Festival; Artrage; Perth International Arts Festival; WA Fringe and others.
