Chill Pill @ The Albany
Thursday, September 19, 2013
Deptford, London, UK SE8 4AG
Curated by Mr Gee (host of Radio 4’s Bespoken Word and Rhyme and Reason), Raymond Antrobus, Deanna Rodger, Simon Mole and Adam Kammerling. Chill Pill is a laid-back club night where up-and-coming poets share the stage with some of the finest Spoken Word acts in the UK. Plus, we’ll be mixing it up with tightly spun tales inspired by today’s headlines, the ever-popular Classics Corner and plenty of banter to boot.
"Here is an art that remains fresh and undefined" - 4 out of 5 stars The Telegraph
After the poetry and music fuelled joy-fest that was 'The Big One', we're back at The Albany to flash our freshly starched poetry pants at y'all. As per usual we've got some exciting, meaty treats in store:
JOELLE TAYLORS IN THE HOUSE!!! Joelle is an OG of the spoken word scene. She's been doing this for tiiiiime. Since 1986! She's shared a stage with everyone who's anyone in poetry, from Benjamin Zephaniah to Simon Armitage to Carol Ann Duffy to Scroobius Pip. She is a poet, a playwright, an artisitic Director, a facilitator and a BEAST. Her poetry is visceral, dreamlike, vivid and brilliant. And she rocks a stage like no one else. Come see!
Music Act TBC. But you know it's gonna be good, right?
Doors at 7.30. Dress code: Thursday best.
We can't wait!
